Registration for the 2022 Virtual Teacher Institute is open. 

Our FREE 2022 Virtual Teacher Institute is the can't miss online educator event of the summer. The event brings together educators from all over the world, and over four days, provides interactive sessions headed by engaging and leading experts in the history and education fields.

Our theme is "Teaching Hard History"

History is not straightforward, it is a complex series of interwoven events that can be challenging to unwind, let alone tackle in a classroom setting. Internal and external factors sometimes create a challenging setting for educators and students alike. How can we, as educators, cut through the static and present a fair and balanced narrative? How can we impact a classroom in a few days, a few months, or perhaps an entire school year? How can we overcome the preconceived notions that students and other educators may have about a historic event? How do we, as educators, unpack a complex topic and make it relatable to today's students? How do we talk about the lessons of history in a constructive and safe manner?

Educators will be immersed in a friendly, fun, and engaging virtual learning environment on the American Battlefield Trust's 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 active educators. At the conclusion of the event, educators will receive a certificate of attendance provided by the American Battlefield Trust. Please join us July 11-14, 2021, on the American Battlefield Trust webinar platform.
