Professional Learning Events

NMAAHC professional learning events are designed to stimulate your mind as a lifelong learner.

Our professional learning events are research-based and incorporate best practices in adult education, pedagogy and classroom strategies. 

NMAAHC wants educators to be inspired by the African American story and in turn share their excitement with their students! Our programs for educators range from one-day professional learning sessions to multi-day institutes.  We take pride in inspiring educators and providing tools for their teaching craft.  Join us to

  • learn more about African American history,
  • discuss strategies for seamlessly integrating African American primary sources into the classroom
  • explore methods for discussing race and racism within the school environment
