The Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE) of The Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA) will be holding its annual conference at the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, Yeshiva University, in New York on June 7-9, 2009. The conference will present research in Jewish education, broadly understood to encompass quantitative and qualitative research, ethnography, case studies, narrative inquiry, philosophical, conceptual, theoretical, and historical research on topics of relevance to Jewish education. All presenters are members in good standing of the Network at the time of the presentation.
The conference will provide a forum for both researchers and practitioners in Jewish education to present and discuss current research. The program will include presentations of basic and applied research, and action or practice-based research. Practitioners will present projects of teacher research, action research, or related forms of inquiry in education. Collaborations between practitioner and academic researchers will also be presented.
The conference is open to members of NRJE only.
