Spring 2015 Webinar Series: The Flipped Jewish Classroom

NATE Webinar Logo-updated

ARJE (formerly NATE) Continuing Education Spring 2015 Mini-Series:

The Flipped Jewish Classroom

What is the Flipped Classroom, and why do we hear so much about it?  How is it the same or different from Blended Learning?

What new pedagogies and possibilities have been created with these technology related trends?  How are these being applied to Jewish Education?

Learn the answers to these questions, and how technology gives us new ways of thinking about space, time and relationships.

Join us for a four part webinar series.  We will hear from a scholar in the field; from important contributors to online Jewish content including G-dcast and Torah Aura; and from educators who are investigating and pioneering these new pedagogies in Jewish education.

Pre-Webinar Prep Videos:
While you are watching the first video, think about how you can turn your classroom into a center of learning. 
And while you are watching the second video, ask yourself what is the equivalent of long division for you, as well as what you think some of your challenges will be, and how you can overcome them.

Fall 2014 Webinar Series: Non-School Based Models of Jewish Education
Brought to you by NATE's Professional Learning/Continuing Education Team

Wednesdays, November 5, 12, December 3, 10, 2014

From camps, projects, family programs, quests, and more, many alternate models of learning within the synagogue structure have emerged over the past 29 years. In this three-session series, we will uncover the history of these developments; learn about the research and scholarship supporting alternative models; explore new practices in the field; and discuss which of these innovations may be most relevant and generative for us in our own settings. Featuring Dr. Isa Aron, Professor of Jewish Education at the Rhea Hirsch School of Education (RHSOE) of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), as well as an array of educators sharing their program models.
