Join us online August 3-4 for the OER Conference for Social Studies 2022. 

Since 2020, the OER Conference for Social Studies (OC for SS) has grown from a pandemic bridging solution to one of the best attended teacher development events on the social studies calendar. We're bringing thousands of teachers from across America together to hear from academics, historians, public thinkers and most importantly, other teachers. Head into the new school year inspired and armed with practical ideas for improving your teaching practice.


Keynote Speakers

Reignite your passion for history and explore ways to improve your teaching practice with some of the best thinkers on civic responsibility, history, and education. We're thrilled to announce our keynote speakers for 2022!

Track Talks

Track Talks are short TED-style video presentations recorded by leading educators on the topics you need to know about as a teacher. We will be gradually releasing these videos in the weeks leading up to the conference to give you time to check them all out, and discuss them in the conference discussion forum ahead of the event.

This year's talks will be organized into five tracks, or themes: 

  • Assessing Historical Thinking
  • Bringing Context to World Events
  • Crafting Inquiry
  • Literacy
  • Taking Informed Action

You can watch these teacher-led, 5–15-minute Track Talks right here on the website before, during, or after the conference. During the conference, each of the five tracks will have a dedicated hour of live discussion with educator input.
