Class Proposals

The request for the Call for Proposals for the Applied Genealogy Institute (AppGen) for Spring 2023 opened on 25 July 2022. Preliminary proposals were due on 14 August 2022. Look for the Call for Proposals for Fall 2023 in early spring 2023.

Applied Genealogy Institute (AppGen) is a virtual institute, providing practicum-based genealogy education in small group settings. A variety of ethnic, methodology, unique record set, and topical research courses are presented twice a year by content experts. You can see our Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 offerings here.

The content of your course should appeal to intermediate to advanced learners. Each class is composed of four sessions, each approximately three hours long (12 hours of total class time). Classes are held once per week for four weeks for 15 students. The instruction may include presentations, in class exercises, and other activities. Challenging assignments will be provided to the students in the intervening weeks; each submission will receive instructor feedback. This out-of-class homework review time is not included in the 12 hours of in-class time. Dates and times for the class are set by the instructor.

We request interested parties to propose in a two-tier proposal process:

  1. Preliminary Proposal.
  2. Detailed Proposal.
