This three-day conference introduces participants to the Museum's pedagogical approach to teaching about the Holocaust, as well as Museum resources.

At the conference, Museum educators and scholars share rationales, strategies, and approaches for teaching about the Holocaust. Participants have the opportunity to tour the Museum’s exhibitions and to explore the Museum’s full range of resources. Those who complete the conference receive a set of educational materials from the Museum.

The 2018 conference will be held in two sessions: the first is designed for English language arts educators; the second is for social studies educators. Those who teach a subject outside these disciplines may select the session that better suits them. The Museum also encourages teachers of related disciplines to register.

There is no charge for the conference, but participants are responsible for their own transportation and accommodations. Scholarships are available.
