AASLH Conversations

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.

We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely. 

This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.

Webinar Description

Augmenting Engagement: Building Virtual Museum and Site Tours, Walking Tours, and Heritage Trails

In this follow-up webinar, David Trowbridge (Marshall University/Clio app) will showcase new features to Clio, a completely free virtual tour app developed with support from NEH and others. Joining David will be an NEH representative to discuss how people and organizations might use Clio, and a staff member from a small history site will share how they have used the app to engage with visitors. Join us for an exciting conversation about how you can use the Clio app (no special tech experience needed!) to promote and share the work your institution is doing and learn how your organization might use a resource like Clio as part of a grant.
