Conference for Holocaust Education Centers—Washington, DC
February 2–5, 2014
This competition has closed.
Designed for educators from Holocaust centers who train secondary teachers, this conference seeks to leverage the Museum’s 20 years of experience in Holocaust education, along with our resources in history and pedagogical practice, to strengthen Holocaust education in the US.
Sessions will focus on current Museum initiatives, up-to-date historical research, research-based pedagogical trends for professional development, resources for teachers, and hands-on workshops in agenda building and program planning.
In addition to training the trainers, the conference is intended to establish a stronger bond between the Museum and the participating centers. In the year following the conference, each center—in partnership with the Museum—will plan and implement a workshop for secondary teachers. A member of the Museum’s Regional Education Corps will also be selected to align with the regions represented by the centers and to work closely with the centers to develop and deliver the follow-up workshops for educators.
We will notify applicants of their selection by Monday, September 30, 2013. Those selected must confirm their intention to attend no later than Thursday, October 10, 2013.
The Conference for Holocaust Education Centers has been made possible with generous support from the David and Fela Shapell Family Foundation.
