We invite you to submit a course proposal for the 2021 NHC Summer Institute, which will be held online Sunday, July 25, 2021 – Sunday, August 8, 2021. Courses meet for either 60 minutes or 90 minutes over two weeks. Teachers can indicate their preference for teaching either in the morning (11 am EDT) or the evening (8 pm EDT) and a schedule that is Monday+Wednesday+Friday or on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Teachers can choose the maximum number of participants in their course, but we encourage you to accommodate at least 40 to ensure everyone has the chance to participate in Institute.
The theme for the 2021 NHC Summer Institute is:
אֵיזֶהוּ חָכָם, הַלּוֹמֵד מִכָּל אָדָם “Who is wise? One who learns from every person”
Applicants are invited and encouraged to draw on this theme in their proposed courses and to note in the proposal how your course addresses the theme.
Applicants are also very much encouraged to think creatively and intentionally about the pedagogy, community and the arts in the particular context of a geographically distant, technologically unified Institute.
