Civil War Era Online Course
Dickinson College / Gilder Lehrman Institute
In Summer 2012, Dickinson College and the Gilder Lehrman Institute for American History launched their first online course in graduate-level professional development for social studies educators. Modeled upon Gilder Lehrman’s highly praised Teacher Seminars, the course provided an intensive five-day session on how to teach Civil War & Reconstruction using the latest digital tools to nearly three dozen K-12 educators from across the country. Selected resources from that experience are now posted at this site.
