Edith Shaked has over 35 years of successful teaching experience at the post-secondary level in Israel, France (University of Lyon II), and the U.S. (History of the Jewish People, Western Civilization, The Holocaust). She initiated and developed the Holocaust (face-to-face and online). Shaked has taught about 64 Holocaust classes. Her hundreds of successful students wrote excellent critique of the lectures notes (the basis for her book) that they used for her class; one of her former student wrote: "What I’ve learned from this class is about humanity. … a different culture could be targeted. This is a great class.” Shaked started the course with 24 students. In spring 2011, there were more than 400 Holocaust students.
In November 2006, Edith Shaked was invited to co-present with Professor Gerhard Weinberg (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Emeritus) a workshop at the International Biannual Conference, Lessons and Legacies of the Holocaust IX Conference at Claremont McKenna College: Teaching about the Holocaust within the Evolution of the Events of World WarII (grant from the Holocaust Education Foundation).

Shaked has been consistently evaluated as an excellent instructor. She has experience with a variety of teaching methods and curricular perspectives. She is an innovative teacher, with a devotion to education and teaching. Finally, she has earned respect of peers, colleagues, and students as a hard-working, personable, dedicated professional. "For the past six years Edith has developed and taught multiple sections of History 274, The Holocaust ... We have watched enrollments grow steadily as a result of Edith’s knowledge and expertise in the area." Dean, 2005. Edith Shaked created a circle of Holocaust educators that she moderates.
