About

The American Historical Association's Remote Teaching Resources compiles materials and tools to help historians develop courses and teach remotely in online and hybrid environments. The site is a central location for resources that have been professionally vetted by historians, offering instructors access to high-quality materials that meet professional standards. Part of Confronting a Pandemic: Historians and COVID-19, the site is funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES Grant. The project is ongoing through December 31, 2020 and will be updated weekly with new resources.

What is included?

Remote Teaching Resources compiles accessibility guides, pedagogy resources, and materials specific to a range of places, eras, topics, and fields, all shared by fellow historians or already online. Materials are available in a range of formats, including filmed lectures, podcasts, conference discussions, online museum exhibits, lesson plans and syllabi, assignments, primary sources with discussion questions, and a wide range of digital history projects.

The resources identified have been tagged and vetted to meet the specific pedagogical and content needs of online and hybrid environments.

Who is this for?

The project's resources are useful to all history instructors and tailored to the needs of those teaching at the college level.
