Yeshiva University’s Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration will soon be offering a new doctoral degree in Jewish Educational Leadership and Innovation. Slated to begin in the fall, the program will combine virtual learning opportunities with live sessions periodically throughout the year and will replace Azrieli’s existing doctoral degree in Jewish Education and Administration.
While Azrieli’s current program featured a more traditional model of 14-week semesters and three-credit courses and was accessible only for those living locally, the new program aims to reach a broader group of educators beyond the New York area, through blended learning techniques and a more hands-on approach to learning.
The new program combines live five-day sessions held during the summers, three-day conferences during the year and virtual learning experiences, to allow Jewish educators from across North America to earn a doctorate while maintaining a professional position.
The doctoral program is geared toward aspiring and current leaders in Jewish day schools, and it targets teachers with significant teaching experience who already have some administrative responsibility as well as educators who want to move into administrative roles or advance to a position of leadership.
The classes are taught by current Azrieli faculty and are enriched by the efforts of adjunct professors, many of whom are veteran educators and administrators.
