Course Spotlight: Teaching Genealogy Classes in Your Community

Have you ever wanted to design your own genealogy course? Do you teach classes or want to teach classes in your town or city? Need help with questions about speaker fees, lesson plans, or venues? Then Teaching Genealogy Classes in Your Community at SLIG Academy for Professionals 2022 is for you.

Become a Better Teacher
Students in this course will be introduced to skills and tools that help them create and design impactful and meaningful classes for their communities. The course will engage students in practice and homework to help them generate lesson plans, becoming a more engaging speaker, and create effectively designed slides. The course will cover instructing in different environments (online vs. live), catering to varying learning styles, and even teaching genealogy to children.

The Business Side of Speaking
In addition to helping you develop your skills as an instructor, students will also take part in discussions about the logistical and business skills essential to become a successful teacher. Experienced course faculty will walk students through choosing venues, marketing your classes, setting fees, and classroom management. Students will also get the opportunity to dive into specialty topics such as designing presentations that are culturally inclusive and copyright issues.
