Preservation Education: Sharing Best Practices and Finding Common Ground
Edited by Barry L. Stiefel and Jeremy C. WellsPaper: $50.00
These essays present the latest thinking on many of today’s key issues in historic preservation and are essential reading for anyone interested in the question posed by the editors, of "what are the best ways for teaching people how to preserve historic properties, and why." With its wide-ranging inclusiveness, the editors have set the bar high and have given us much to ponder as we seek to answer this important question for ourselves.
—Preservation Education & Research
Stiefel and Wells’ 2014 publication is a must read for all academics and practitioners involved in the delivery of preservation education/heritage conservation at further or higher education institutions, and it should result in a pause for reflection of their content and pedagogy.
—The Historic Environment
The volume contributes to the literature of historic preservation and heritage studies, as well as related to pedagogical practice and theory. It will serve as a source book for instructors and, importantly, practitioners in the field.
