WHaLI workshops provide area teachers with:

-Engaging mini-lectures by some of the world’s greatest scholars on relevant content.
-Teachable materials, including PowerPoint slides, primary sources, and documents.
-Materials created by U-M’s History Education Project (Bob Bain, director).
-Pedagogical discussions and approaches to teaching this content to your students.
-Opportunities to talk with other area teachers and instructors.
-Access to previous WHI workshop materials (including videos and PowerPoints) and sample lessons.
-Opportunities to earn CEUs (extra fee required).
-Breakfast and lunch for all three days of the workshop.

Teacher participants have praised the workshops for both the intellectual content and the approaches to teaching world history and literature. More significantly, teachers have used presentation materials and ideas with their students to enhance the ways they teach world history and literature. For more information, please visit
