    Accessibility and Inclusivity at Museums and Historic Sites is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about how museums and historic sites can create inclusive programming and educational experiences for history lovers of all ages and abilities. This event is presented by Katie Stringer Clary. Conversations about inclusivity and accessibility have become common place within the museum community. Issues of inclusivity can take account of a variety of audiences with special needs: those with mobility limitations, deaf/hearing impaired, blind/visually impaired, developmental, cognitive, or learning disabilities, and on the autism spectrum. As many museums have realized over the past two decades, people with special needs are an important audience; one that should not be ignored. But how can museums and historic sites make their programming and interpretative goals inclusive to those groups? And how can we be more purposeful in our efforts to better serve everyone in our communities? Join AASLH and Katie Stringer Clary in a conversation on how museums and historic sites can create inclusive programming and educational experiences for history lovers of all ages and abilities. Going beyond basic ADA compliance, this webinar will provide examples and strategies for cultural organizations to be better stewards of history and accessible to diverse audiences.

    About the Speaker: Dr. Katie Stringer Clary currently teaches history and public history at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina. Since 2007, Dr. Clary has worked with museums in various capacities from docent to executive director. In her time at museums and as a graduate student in Public History she focused on museum education and inclusion, especially for people with special needs. This research culminated in her 2014 manuscript, Programming for People with Special Needs: A Guide for Museums and Historic Sites. She followed this with a chapter “Accessibility in Museum Learning” in Museum Learning, 2nd Ed. edited by Barry Lord and Brad King in 2015. Through her work, she continues to advocate for accessibility equality in museums and historic sites and presented as a discussant in a ongoing working group on this topic at the National Council for Public History in March of 2016.

    Are You Ready for Volunteers? is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about how to plan for a volunteer program at your history organization or how to improve the program that you currently have. This event is presented by Bethany Hawkins. Many volunteer programs have existed with little or no formal processes and assessments in place. Often, there is no paid staff member who manages the volunteer program. The result is that the programs are often not well run, translating into high volunteer turnover, anemic buy-in from the organization's management and staff, and ultimately, low program success. This webinar will address how to plan for a volunteer program at your history organization or how to improve the program that you currently have.

This webinar is about creating bottom-up interpretation from top-down narratives. It is presented by Dr. Ashley Bouknight of Andrew Jackson's Hermitage in Nashville, TN.

    Have you ever visited a site that has a documented history of slavery, but only been told the stories of the white slave-owners who lived there? Do you work at a site like this? The choice we make about the stories we share, or omit, as interpreters and history practitioners, tells its own story. Do you know which narratives you are reinforcing or omitting in your work?

    In this webinar, Dr. Ashley Bouknight will share her experience of modifying her site’s mansion tour to create a specialized walking tour focused on the enslaved community. The session will focus on how to gain buy-in for new programs from your institution.
