Teacher training

Upcoming Seminars

In 2022, a total of six seminars will be held in Slovakia, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Lithuania and Moldova. The seminars will take place in May, June and July. 

Based on the experience of the 2020 seminars, we will invite secondary school educators to participate in our on-site educational events, which will include visits to cemeteries and hands-on workshops with experts.

Furthermore, seven online workshops, one for each country, will be scheduled.

Past seminars

We organised seven interactive training seminars for 250 teachers in seven countries in 2020.

The seminars conducted within the project were open to educators, multipliers in formal and non-formal education, and NGO representatives from Slovakia, Croatia, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, Ukraine, and Georgia.

During the seminars, participants work in small groups, where they use materials and databases provided by project partners to create lesson plans and extra-curricular projects relating to Jewish cemeteries. 

This approach encourages participants to increase their cross-cultural competencies by sharing their knowledge, skills, and creativity with each other. 

After each seminar, we collect the lessons on Jewish cemeteries developed by the participants to share them with other teachers on our project website.
