Resources for History Practitioners

As a field, we are constantly growing and improving. AASLH’s Professional Development offerings are an important part of that growth, connecting you with leaders in the field, proven standards and best practices, and fresh ideas. AASLH webinars, online courses, and workshops are designed for busy professionals, students, and volunteers. We do everything we can to make it easy for you to fit professional development into your schedule, like flexible online course deadlines and recording all our webinars. All events are open to the public. AASLH members and STEPS participants get significant discounts on all offerings, and several low-cost webinars are offered each year.

Ways to Learn


Webinars are online discussions, typically lasting 60 to 75 minutes including a Q&A session. During each live webinar, you can use the Q&A and Chat features to type messages and questions to the panelists and other participants. Webinars are recorded so you can re-watch whenever you want.

Online Courses

Online Courses are typically between four to eight weeks long. They offer each student a chance to engage deeply with subject material over an extended period of time, all at their own pace. Keep on track with regular video chats and other interactions with accessible faculty, and discuss the course material with classmates in online forums.
