American Battlefield Trust Event
July 24 - 26, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM EDT

Our FREE 2023 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 three days, provides interactive sessions headed by engaging and leading experts in the history and education fields.

Our theme is "Technology in History and in the Classroom"

Technology impacts our daily lives. From smartphones and tablets to smart cars, technology engulfs our civilization. Technology has made connecting with one another as well as our collective past easier, and sometimes more difficult. Technology is interwoven with the events of the past. Join the American Battlefield Trust for our 2023 Virtual Teacher Institute, where, we will explore the many facets of technology. From teaching tools in our classrooms to the impact the steam engine had on society, we will explore the complex story of humankind and technology. 

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 can receive a continuing education certificate provided by St. Bonaventure University. Please join us July 24-26, 2023, on the American Battlefield Trust webinar platform.
