Our education team currently offers a variety of professional development opportunities for educators each year:
Partner Programs: The Virginia Museum of History and Culture frequently partners with other cultural institutions to reach more educators across the Commonwealth. Past programs have included a "Secession and Civil War" workshop in partnership with Teaching American History, a workshop in partnership with five Richmond area museums entitled Monumental Moments: Public Art and Public Memory, and workshops with the Library of Virginia on the power of the average Virginian to impact political change.
Southwestern VA Teacher Workshops: Thanks to the generosity of Appalachian Power, VMHC Education is able to travel to various locations throughout Southwestern Virginia in order to offer teacher programming. Learn more about our September 2023 sessions, held in Bedford & Christiansburg, here.
The Weinstein Properties Teachers Institute is a week-long program that is offered twice each summer. This institute includes stipends for all participants in addition to a limited number of travel scholarships. Registration for Summer 2024 is NOW OPEN:
The dates and subject of Primarily Virginia, the VMHC online institute, varies from year to year. All institutes are open to private and public school teachers of any grade level.
We also offer private teacher workshops using primary sources.
