Share

The Museum’s Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators (HITE) prepares education methodology professors to equip teacher candidates with the skills and expertise they need to teach about the Holocaust effectively. 

June 3-6, 2019, in Washington, DC
Participants at this four-day conference will:

  • Engage with other experienced teacher educators relating to questions of theory and pedagogy.
  • Examine educational resources that can be incorporated into methodology coursework.
  • Interact with Museum curators, educators, historians, and photo, film, and document archivists.
  • Tour the Museum’s exhibitions and consider the potential opportunities for classroom use.

During the following academic year, participants are expected to follow up on what they learned at HITE. Options include directing an on-campus workshop to advance Holocaust education, leading a webinar that showcases the integration of content pedagogical principles in to methodology coursework, or creating lessons using Museum resources for use in methodology coursework.

Who is eligible? 

Full-time secondary teacher methodology professors of history, social studies, foreign language, special education, English/Language Arts, library science, and instructional media specialists are welcome to apply. Two professors from up to 12 colleges or universities will be selected to participate. Preference will be given to candidates who are active in their campus community and professional organizations.

All expenses for travel and lodging are included.
