About AASLH Continuing Education

As a field, we are constantly growing and improving. AASLH’s Continuing Education 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 continuing education into your schedule, like flexible online course deadlines and recording all our webinars.

All events are open to the public. AASLH members get significant discounts on all offerings, and several free-for-members webinars are offered each year.

Ways to Learn

Webinars are online discussions, typically lasting 75 to 90 minutes including a Q&A session. During each live webinar, you can use the chat section to type messages and questions to the speaker and other participants. After each webinar, a recording is sent to participants to save and re-watch whenever you want.

Upcoming Webinars

Online Courses are typically between four to six 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 chats and other interactions with accessible faculty, and discuss the course material with classmates in online forums. Course topics range from archives and collections, to exhibitions and museum education.

Workshops are one to two day in-person training events. We offer between 10-12 classes every year in various locations around the country. Each workshop offers participants a chance to engage in intensive learning and discussion with faculty and classmates.
