Conference for Holocaust Education Centers (CHEC)
Many of the nearly 200 Holocaust centers around the country offer professional development programs for educators. These centers (PDF) have participated in the Museum’s Conference for Holocaust Education Centers, which explores the challenges of creating effective Holocaust education programs for teachers.
During the conference, centers work closely with Museum staff to learn about our resources and research-based pedagogical approach. Each center is committed to integrating this knowledge into future professional development programs that will include Museum resources, teaching guidelines, and pedagogical models.

Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators (HITE)
The Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators is designed to assist methods professors in ensuring teacher candidates have a sound pedagogical foundation to teach about the Holocaust.
Professors of secondary level methods courses participate in the Holocaust Institute, a four-day program at the Museum in Washington, DC, where participants consider best practices in Holocaust education and how to utilize USHMM resources. Professors work with Museum Teacher Fellows to implement a workshop for preservice teachers on their campus.
