From In-Service Training to Professional Development: Alternative Paradigms In Israel for Diaspora Educators

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


The authors explore the key characteristics of professional development for diaspora educators in Israel. They also look at the benefits of training programs in Israel, and consider how time should be spent as a resource for Jewish teacher education. They review two specific teacher-training seminars that took place during the summer of 2003: Kivunim and Ameinu. They find multiple levels of impact on participants and suggest ways in which training programs can be used as a basis for ongoing curriculum and professional development, and for re-visioning schools' purposes.
