Throughout the year, the AHA hosts many online events for both members and the public. These events bring together scholars to discuss history and current events, hash out issues of professional development at every career stage, exchange teaching resources and strategies, and develop networks of historians doing similar kinds of work. Many of the sessions are recorded and made available as resources for members.
AHA staff continues to gather information about what historians would like to see available online. We welcome all suggestions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, but cannot guarantee implementation: many good, creative ideas are just not possible given limitations of cost, staffing, and technology. What we can do is to welcome and consider opportunities to increase access to conversation, collaboration, communication, and community.

AHA Online Teacher Institute in World History: Is Democracy in Crisis?
Generously sponsored by Open Educational Resources
July 31–August 4, 2023
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of its involvement in the creation of the C3 Framework, the AHA will convene a weeklong professional development institute via Zoom for K–12 teachers of world history (including dual-enrollment courses). The five sessions in this week-long program will explore how teachers can channel one of the most pressing questions in global current events to engage students in the world history classroom. Historian Kenneth Pomeranz will lead participants through analysis of the efforts of leading historians to contextualize the political, social, and economic forces driving a resurgence of authoritarianism around the globe.
