Join us July 13-16, 2023, in Baltimore, Maryland, for the 2023 National Teacher Institute!

Our theme is "What's Past is Prologue: Making History Relatable in Today's Classrooms."

Our annual National Teacher Institute brings together educators from all over the world. This three-and-a-half-day event includes breakout sessions, workshops, lectures, and tours from some of the leading experts in the history and education fields.

Educators will be immersed in a friendly, fun, and engaging learning environment where they can network with other educators and learn more about the historical topics they teach in their classrooms while acquiring new and innovative teaching methods. Our National Teacher Institute is more than just methodology; it's about making you a better, more well-rounded educator. We hope you will leave the Institute with a better understanding of your subject matter, a passion for history education, and lifelong friendships.  

This event is free but requires a $100 refundable deposit to reserve your spot. At the conclusion of the event, educators can apply for continuing education certificates provided by St. Bonaventure University and paid for by the American Battlefield Trust and can request a refund of their deposit if they attended the event.

Please join us July 13-16, 2023, in Baltimore, MD.
