Please provide a two- to three-sentence bio that will be shared with your fellow conference participants. The bio should be written in the third person and can describe where you are from, where and what you teach, and salient points from your professional, academic, or personal life.
We want to know when you will be arriving at the Yiddish Book Center, and when will you be departing, so that we can know how many people will be attending each session and each meal. In particular, please let us know if you will be attending the dinner on Sunday, 7/21.
On Monday, July 22, at 1:30 pm, conference participants will meet in small groups to share elements of their teaching practice, and to get feedback from their peers. Each participant will briefly (5-10 minutes) share a lesson or assignment—preferably something involving modern Jewish literature or culture—that worked well, that flopped, or that landed somewhere in between. This is an opportunity to share your wisdom with other teachers and to receive their insights. We encourage everyone at the conference to participate by presenting. Are you willing to do so? (If you answer "yes," we'll be in touch with more details closer to the conference.)
We will be providing the following Kosher catered meals: Dinner on 7/21; light breakfast, lunch, and dinner on 7/22; light breakfast and lunch on 7/23. (The light breakfast will include pastries, fruit, and coffee. The rooms at the Holiday Inn also come with complimentary (non-Kosher) breakfast.)
Please let us know if you have any food allergies or restrictions so we can let our caterers know.
