"Login and Learn" at the 2020 American Battlefield Trust Virtual Teacher Institute

Our first ever Virtual Teacher Institute brings together educators from all over the world. This four-day event includes some of the leading experts and speakers in the history and education fields.

Educators will be immersed in a friendly, fun, and engaging virtual learning environment on the American Battlefield Trust's Zoom webinar platform. Learn more about the historical topics that you teach in the classroom while acquiring new and innovative teaching methods. Our Virtual Teacher Institute is more than just methodology, it's about making you a better, more well-rounded educator. We hope that you will leave the Institute with a better understanding of your subject matter and a passion for history education.

This event is free to educators. At the conclusion of the event, educators can apply for a continuing education certificate, provided by Virginia Tech University.
