What’s NEXT in online professional development? Here are Gratz College’s NEXT program’s offerings for this winter! Supplementary school programs must hire teachers with a complex patchwork of backgrounds and skills while living with budgets that lack healthy line items for professional development for those teachers. The challenge is how to provide the range – and depth –of learning needed to efficiently enhance our teachers’ knowledge and skills. NEXT addresses the disparate levels of experience in Jewish knowledge and educational pedagogy.

We are pleased to present high-quality, intensive learning opportunities for Supplementary School teachers this semester. These classes are online and asynchronous – meaning that teachers log in and participate in the class for ANY two hours a week that they choose, night or day.

Our Winter semester begins February 20th.
