Start the new year strong! Join us for a two-part experiential training that explores new pedagogies in virtual education while modeling community-building through a Jewish education lens. The sessions are designed to expand educators’ leadership capacity online and in the classroom, and offer fresh inspiration to deepen their connection to the students and to one another.
The shift to online engagement has lowered the barrier to entry while leaving people thirsty for authentic connection. Now more than ever is a time for inspiration an intervention, by creatively offering staff the resources, ideas, and capacity to experiment. These sessions are valuable not only for learning skills and content, but also in providing staff with a fun, positive virtual experience to re-energize them for their role as educators and Jewish role models.
