Teaching and Learning at AHA18

The AHA is committed to making resources available to educators at all levels and at every stage of their careers. That’s why the annual meeting’s teaching and learning program offers dozens of workshops, networking opportunities, and sessions to keep historians engaged with new and innovative teaching tools and scholarship.

2018 Lightning Rounds

This year, the AHA18 annual meeting will feature three lightning rounds: the Dissertation Lightning Round, the Early Career Lightning Round, and the Digital Projects Lightning Round. Come to these sessions to learn about new scholarship on a wide range of topics.

Oral History Jukebox Workshop

The Oral History Jukebox is an open, informal exchange where oral historians of all experience levels and backgrounds come together to listen and learn. This workshop will turn an open ear to the granularity of oral history recordings, searching the medium for key insights into the field.

Getting Started in Digital History 2018

The AHA ran its fifth Getting Started in Digital History workshop immediately prior to the start of the 2018 meeting. More and more of our attendees describe themselves as skilled digital historians, so each session included a clear skill range that let beginners get a good handle on digital history and gave returning intermediate attendees the chance to learn new skills in a comfortable, approachable environment.
