Since 2006, our online learning program has worked with over 8,000 educators to connect the past to the present through online courses, workshops, and webinars.
Our online learning team is composed of Facing History staff members from around the country who build on the internationally recognized strategies and resources of Facing History and Ourselves to deliver programming to a national and international educator audience. We work with educators regardless of where they are located to improve their effectiveness in the classroom, as well as their students' academic performance and civic learning.
Online courses and our Educator Network: become a fully trained Facing History teacher by signing up for a seven or eight week long online course that will qualify you as a member of our Educator Network. Membership in our Educator Network grants you access to the complete Facing History website, our extensive lending library, and one-on-one support from a Facing History program associate. Online courses can be taken for graduate credit.
Online workshops: look indepth at Facing History resources like Red Scarf Girl or Freedom Riders, or explore themes such as antisemitism, bullying, civic participation, and moral decision making in one to two week long online workshops. Like our online courses, workshops are facilitated by experienced Facing History staff and offer participants strategies and ideas on bringing our materials into their classrooms.
Webinars: explore Facing History themes and topics in live, interactive, facilitated online learning events. Features such as two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, application and desktop sharing, rich media, and breakout rooms allow Facing History staff and scholars to engage with participants with the benefits of a traditional classroom in a virtual setting. All sessions are recorded for those who cannot attend the live event.

Facing History and Ourselves is partnering with the USC Shoah Foundation to explore how Facing History teachers can use the new online tool, IWitness, to shape teaching and learning experiences for students in a Facing History course. IWitness is an online application that gives educators and students access to search, watch, and learn from more than 1,000 video testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses.
