Get Help Here Webinars offers a variety of documents-based webinar programs throughout each school year, anchored in our Saturday Webinars series, which runs from August through May. Each month a different panel of scholars – experts in their fields – will discuss the topic at hand, with Dr. Chris Burkett of Ashland University as moderator, and a live online audience of teachers. Everyone involved plays a role in shaping the discussion, which is rooted in a set of primary documents published on this site in advance of each program. All programs are archived and made available through’s YouTube channel, as well as for podcasting through iTunes. is a project of the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University
