Apply Now for 2016 Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators

    AACTE and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) are now accepting applications for the 2016 Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators (HITE) in Washington, DC. Now entering its 9th year, the institute is open to any full-time faculty member specializing in secondary education in an AACTE member college or school of education. Favorable consideration will be given to those applying along with a colleague from the same institution but each colleague must complete an application.

    Applicants selected to participate in the program will attend a weeklong workshop in June to be hosted by the USHMM in Washington, DC. Participants will receive extensive training on content and pedagogy of teaching the Holocaust/genocide and must agree to conduct a follow-up activity that employs the training they receive.

    Interested faculty must apply by February 15, 2016, through an online application. Because this program is exclusively for AACTE members, you must log in to your AACTE profile to apply. If you have questions about HITE or the application, please contact me at

      Are there scholarships that cover all or part of the cost of this training?

        Hi Seth –

        Great question! The USHMM has graciously offered to cover all conference-related expenses for participants who are selected (airfare, accommodations, etc.). Please let me know if you have any further questions, thank you.
