MOCHE Visiting Scholars Program

MOCHE contacts professional historians, veteran teacher leaders, and other scholars to conduct high quality professional development workshops for individual schools or school districts. We will work with the school or district and cater to the needs of those teachers. Programs can be half or full-day workshops. For more information, contact Dr. Flannery Burke.

Upcoming Visiting Scholars Programs


MOCHE provides additional opportunities for in-service days.  Let us come to your school or district to discuss innovative and effective instructional methods with you and your colleagues.
