Professional Development

Including history, social studies, English language arts & fine arts.

We offer professional development for any number of teachers across the humanities' content areas, including history, social studies, English language arts and fine arts. Our webinars are the perfect opportunity for individual teachers to learn more about particular content, see how to translate that content inform their classroom and interact virtually with other teachers. We can also provide professional development at the school or district level catered to your particular needs.

Professional development at the Ohio History Connection is provided by the Creative Learning Factory. For more information, including our latest workshops and webinars, visit: www.creativelearningfactory.org or contact us at info@creativelearningfactory.org.

Teacher in Residence

Teacher in Residence

The Ohio History Connection Teacher-In-Residence Program is a new, innovative way for social studies teachers to participate in professional development while discovering and utilizing the various resources offered by the Ohio History Connection and Creative Learning Factory. Over a period of two weeks, teachers will go behind the scenes to learn about the Ohio History Center, experience hands-on historical thinking activities, and collaborate to create unique educational projects. The program is designed to provide educators with the knowledge, tools, and atmosphere to participate in enlightened thinking, engaging activities, and immersive learning that will ultimately be transferable to their own teaching methods.

The Education and Outreach Division of the Ohio History Connection will select 3-5 social studies teachers each year to participate. The program will be held for two weeks during the summer from June 16 – June 26, 2015. Educators will take part in a wide variety of sessions, including discussion panels, historical thinking activities, site visits, behind the scenes museum tours, archival research, collaborative brainstorming, and the creation of a culminating project. The Ohio History Connection Teacher-In-Residence Program is the ultimate opportunity for educators to learn, experience, and create!
