Professional Development

In support of K-12 Social Studies education, the Department of History and Political Science has developed a Professional Development Lecture Series that connects directly to Kentucky Social Studies Standards. Each brief lecture provides new and long-standing teachers with the ability to review key historical and political science topics from the convenience of a computer or personal electronic device.  It is our hope that these lectures deepen content knowledge and assist teachers in the classroom.  

Please select a link below to view a recorded lecture.  If you, or a colleague, have a topic you would like to to covered that is not listed, please contact the project coordinator, Dr. Nathan Coleman at
