We’re all exploring ways to ensure our students’ learning – and our own – continues to advance. Our new professional development conference for social studies can help meet those needs.

OER Conference for K-12 Social Studies
August 5-7, 2020

Free, online professional development opportunity for social studies teachers of all grade levels.

A New Kind of Conference

Challenging times require ingenuity and collaboration. Now more than ever, teachers need opportunities to gather and discuss how teaching practices can and should progress to meet future learning needs – in or out of the classroom – to address pandemic needs. This first ever OER Conference for Social Studies is a three day online virtual event for social studies teachers.  Help us help you keep learning going. (And maybe even earn some clock hours!)

Education tracks and discussion groups aligned to your state standards and grade level

Keynote speakers include John Green, Nate Bowling, Linda Darling Hammond, Dr. Yohuru Williams, and Jill Lepore

Free, online and designed for educators facing a new teaching reality

The schedule

We worked with Sched, an online scheduling tool, to build out our conference sessions. To sign up for the conference, you must create a Sched account if you do not already have one.
