Professional Learning

Our learning opportunities are designed to fit your goals and busy schedule.

From in-person seminars and workshops to synchronous online courses and webinars, our professional learning opportunities provide a fresh perspective.

We offer flexibility to fit your schedule.

Don’t have a lot of time? Our one-hour webinars introduced you to a timely issue, featured expert, or engaging teaching strategies. If you miss a live webinar, most are available for on-demand viewing.

For those with more time, we offer a wide-range of  self-guided and facilitated workshops, courses, and seminars.

Find professional learning that fits your needs.

Explore our offerings

Many of our offerings are free or low-cost. Payment assistance is also often available for fee-based professional learning. Applications for financial aid via grant or scholarship can be filled out as you are completing the registration application, as well.

After participating in professional development, we are here to support you with everything that you need to create effective and impactful classroom experiences. Educators who take professional learning with us will receive:

  • A Certificate of Completion: Awarded upon successful completion of the session you registered for. The number of creditable PD hours varies per offering. It is the educator's responsibility to ensure that they are meeting the requirements of their state or district.
  • Continuing coaching and support—from our Program Associates, who can answer questions, problem-solve, and help you plan your unit; through our extensive online resource library; and at follow-up webinars and other events.
  • You will become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia.
“Love the energy and positivity of the facilitators. I also appreciate how, as always, you provide so many practical and tangible ideas and methods that we can bring back to our classrooms.”
