Teacher Seminars at the HHRC
Each year, the HHRC engages teachers looking for professional development opportunities by offering a series of one and two-day teacher seminars.
One day seminars on various topics are offered during the school year, and two-day seminars are offered in the summer.
All programs will be held at the Michael Klahr Center on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta, 46 University Drive, Augusta, Maine. Each seminar includes light breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages. In addition, seminars offer contact hours which can be used towards re-certification.
Seminars generally run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m each day, and are limited to classes of not more than 25 educators to ensure that there is plenty of time and room for participants to share ideas and discoveries.
Each seminar is created to provide information which can readily be transferred to lesson plans and include guest speakers, a collection of resources, and more.
In addition to the HHRC educational staff, partners in our seminars include Facing History and Ourselves, Teaching Tolerance, ICivics, the Maine Department of Education, and Echoes of Reflections, among others.
