The World History Initiative (WHI) is pleased to invite you to participate in another WHI workshop Wednesday, June 18th to Friday, June 20th. For a modest fee ($45.00), WHI workshops provide area teachers with:

  • Engaging mini-lectures by some of the world’s great scholars on relevant content.
  • Teachable materials, including PowerPoint slides, primary sources and documents.
  • Materials created by U-M’s History Education Project (Bob Bain, director).
  • Pedagogical discussions and approaches to teaching this content to your students.
  • Opportunities to talk with other area teachers and instructors.
  • Access to previous WHI workshop materials (including videos, powerpoints) and sample lessons.
  • Opportunity to earn CEUs (extra fee required).
  • Breakfast and lunch for all three days of the workshop.
  • More information.

These very popular and very successful workshops are co-sponsored and planned by the University of Michigan’s International Institute and the School of Education in collaboration with the Eisenberg Institute's Global Dimensions Project. The workshop will include presentations from historians offering case studies of cities in world history. Further, Bob Bain, Associate Professor of Education and History, leads discussions on pedagogy related to teaching world history, offering materials to help teachers organize and tie together the historical content. This will be the seventh such workshop we have organized in the last five years. Teacher participants have praised the workshops for both the intellectual content and the approaches to teaching world history. More significantly, teachers have used presentation materials and ideas with their students to enhance the ways they teach world history.
