Nobel Prize Teacher Summit Hubs:

Become a part of the Nobel Prize Education Network! With our conference kit, you can host a hub for teachers to take part in a seminar with Nobel Prize laureates and other interesting speakers. You invite the teachers and we provide you with the material.

In the Flood of Facts

We have recorded the lectures from our seminar about how to teach about facts, critical thinking and conspiracy theories. You are welcome to use the videos and the conference kit to arrange your own hub for the Nobel Prize Teacher Summit at any time you choose.

After the 12-minute introduction to the hubs and, a virtual guided tour from the Nobel Prize Museum – watch the video of the lectures together with your group of teachers. Then discuss the proposed questions found in our printable workbook, where you will also find presentations of the speakers.

You can choose to watch the full 2 hour video or select the parts of the program that are the most relevant for your audience.

How to host a hub

This is an opportunity for you to invite local teachers to watch the online seminar together. We refer to these groups of teachers as hubs for the Nobel Prize Teacher Summit.

Each group of teachers can be small or large; you decide! And this conference is relevant to teachers of all subjects, from all sorts of schools, teaching from preschool up to university level. The more heterogeneous the group is, the better!

The Nobel Prize Museum will provide you with the following:

1. A template for your invitation

2. A printable workbook with the theme, speaker’s presentation and suggested questions to discuss

3. A digital backdrop for the event (may only be used in this digital version).

4. A direct link to the broadcast on YouTube.

Your commitment

1. Send out invitations to teachers

2. Arrange for snacks / food and drinks

3. Provide a projector or a screen with good audio

4. Print out materials for the teachers

5. Host the event for approximately 3 hours working around the recorded version of the Nobel Prize Teacher Summit
