Centropa Professional Development Seminar in Berlin
The main aim of Cenropa’s educational programmes is to create a European-wide network for history and English teachers of Jewish schools. Centropa seminars act as a professional development course and meant to provide teachers with a platform so they can share best practices and learn from one another on how to use new technologies, digital storytelling, English and Holocaust education—all in a single course.
