What is a Teach-Out?

The Teach-Out series is inspired by historic Teach-Ins of the 1960s and '70s, where people came together with the goal of creating change.

Teach-Outs bring people from around the world together to learn about and address important topics in society. They are free and open online learning events where you’ll learn from diverse experts, discuss and connect with other participants, and consider actions you can take in your own community.

The Backstory

The Teach-Out series is inspired by historic Teach-Ins of the 1960s and ’70s, where people came to learn together and discuss important problems with the goal of creating change. The first Teach-In was in March, 1965. Rather than walking out of class for sit-ins (a form of protest), University of Michigan faculty and students held “Teach-Ins” where people discussed the Vietnam War for one full day and night.

The University of Michigan’s Teach Outs are licensed CC BY-SA, which allows you to freely share, adapt and build on the material as long as the University of Michigan is credited as the original creator of the work and any new uses are licensed under the same license.
