The Sydney Jewish Museum Teachers’ Network is an initiative that brings together teachers four times a year from a variety of schools and disciplines in a collaborative and supportive environment. Each Network event is unique, with new perspectives offered on education, history, the Holocaust and museum collections.
The aim of the Network is to provide teachers an opportunity to engage with peers in the industry, expand on content knowledge, design classroom strategies, and discuss the complexities of Holocaust education as well as education more broadly.
The Museum holds 4 free NESA-accredited events each year; one per term. Each event is three hours long, and features a different program, providing a variety of opportunities.
Past Teachers’ Network events have included presentations from Justice Michael Kirby QC CMG, David Gonski AC, Belinda Hutchinson AM, and Jenny Allum, explorations of the Museum’s temporary exhibitions with Head Curator Roslyn Sugarman, round-table pedagogy discussions with the Museum Education Team, and access to classroom resources prior to their general release.
