Innovation in Jewish Education

Facilitator: Suri Jacknis
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

This network will bring you together with other educators for peer support and critical colleagueship. As this network welcomes a different facilitator this coming year, we hope to open a new chapter of rich professional growth and sharing even as we build on existing network rituals, culture and relationships. We will check in on adaptations you have made for the coming year to continue to create powerful learning and meaningful Jewish experiences for learners and families. You will share and get feedback on new ideas you are developing as well as challenges you are confronting. This network is a great opportunity for you to engage in text study, to build new collegial relationships, and to learn about new resources and the work of your fellow educators. Network activities will include: text study; case studies; reflection; protocols for sharing both new innovative learning experiences as well as challenges; and resource sharing. You will identify and work towards a professional goal as well as contribute to the field by designing and/or implementing innovative strategies in your own setting or in the larger community.

Additional Information:

This network is designed for educators (education directors, lead teachers, and entrepreneurial educators) engaged in K-12 part-time Jewish education.
