Various - please see website for details

The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) is sponsoring a two-day workshop, Connecting Your Collections to Teachers and Students, April 10-11 at the Ohio Historical Society. Through a combination of presentations, discussions, hands-on activities, and take-home materials, this workshop addresses the various elements of museum education and program planning needed to create an engaging, educational, and successful program with a focus on collections-based programming. Topics include learning styles, presentation strategies, audience types, planning strategies and program assessment, using research, training staff, and crafting programming that is meaningful to the education community.

AASLH is also offering several other on-site workshops this spring and summer. Historic House Museum Issues and Operations focuses on the unique needs, management, and interpretation of historic houses. Topics covered include collections care, research, developing exhibits, interpretive tours, and building maintenance. Collections Management and Practices will help attendees become familiar with policies, procedures, collections management best practices, and current issues and trends so they can better understand how collections fit within history organizations. Finally, Collections Camp: Military History will focus on the care, conservation, and exhibition of military artifacts in museum collections. Conservators and curators will help participants become better caretakers of military artifacts.
