Remote Teaching Resources for Historians

The American Historical Association has launched Remote Teaching Resources to help our members and colleagues with the challenges of being a historian, and a history teacher, in a virtual environment. This ongoing project compiles materials and tools to aid historians in developing courses and teaching remotely in online and hybrid environments, providing a central location where instructors can access high-quality materials that meet professional standards. All resources are vetted by a team of historians at the AHA. Remote Teaching Resources is part of “Confronting a Pandemic: Historians and COVID-19,” which has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, using funding from the CARES Act.

How to Use

Simply visit the site and find the resource you need. Remote Teaching Resources includes accessibility guides, pedagogy resources, and materials specific to a range of places, eras, topics, and fields. Resources are available in a wide range of formats, including filmed lectures, podcasts, short videos, lesson plans, syllabi, assignments, primary sources with discussion questions, online museum exhibits, maps, and a wide range of digital history projects useful for instruction.

 

How to Submit

To maximize the number and range of resources available prior to the fall semester, the AHA encourages historians to submit teaching materials to the project using this form. No contribution is too small. New resources will be uploaded weekly through December 31, 2020.

We encourage you to use these resources in your classes and to share them with colleagues. Please share the call for submissions with colleagues as well – we would be grateful for any materials they can contribute.
