Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators

Share

The Museum’s Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators (HITE) works with university and college education faculty to prepare them to incorporate Holocaust content and pedagogy into methodology coursework. By addressing the Holocaust with pre-service teachers, there is an opportunity to prepare them to effectively teach about the Holocaust in their future classrooms. The program focuses on learning Holocaust history, examining USHMM education resources, and discussing pedagogical considerations.

We invite you to take part in a special virtual program session of the Belfer National Conference for Educators. This 2021 conference has three sessions. Session 1 (July 7–9) for in-service teachers, Session 2 (July 28–30) for teachers who have attended the Belfer conference previously and Session 3 (Aug 2–3) for education partners including professors in schools of education. This two-day conference will be an introduction to the Museum’s resources and pedagogical concerns related to incorporating the Holocaust into courses in a wide variety of disciplines and age levels. It will also allow for discussion and network building with other professors of education interested in including the Holocaust in their education courses. Those attending the virtual conference will receive priority when registering for future in-person events.

For more information, contact Jeffrey Parker, Program Coordinator, Education Initiatives, at 202.314.1770 or jtparker@ushmm.org.

The Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators is made possible by a generous grant from the Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Foundation.
