Hinduism 101: Request a Teacher's Training

What we cover

Hinduism 101 Teacher Training is an hour-long training that helps educators relate to and explain challenging topics in classrooms, including concepts such as karma, dharma, and moksha; the disputed origins of ancient Indian civilizations; and the development of what is now referred to as the caste system. The trainings can be done in person or via a webinar format such as WebEx, Skype, or Google Hangout. They allow for maximum interaction between the trainer and participants, often clarifying key concepts for teachers.

Where we've been

Since launching our training initiative in August 2013, the Hinduism 101 Teacher Training has trained over 2,000 teachers, reaching over half the country. The demand for the trainings has made Hinduism 101 a fixture at social studies conferences such as the National Council for the Social Studies, and councils for the social studies in California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
