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 balances Holocaust history, examining USHMM education resources, and discussing pedagogical considerations.

In order to accommodate the cohort of professors who were accepted for the in-person program two years ago, the HITE program will not be opening an application for new professors this year. If you are interested in learning more about incorporating lessons and resources into your methods coursework, we invite you to take part in the Belfer National Conference for Educators. The 2022 conference will take place June 27-29, 2022.

This three-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.

Please direct any questions to Jeffrey Parkerat jtparker@ushmm.org.

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