While many fine institutions exist to teach Torah to the next generation of Jewish leaders, rarely are these scholars taught how to teach the Torah that they have learned. Despite the lack of teacher training, Jewish professionals are simply expected to be able to teach Torah well. Pardes institute believes that a significant increase in the number of highly-trained Torah teachers has the capacity to radically change the Jewish community’s relationship to its spiritual and intellectual heritage. Through this teacher training bootcamp (June 21-July 2, 2020), Pardes aims to significantly improve the quality of adult Jewish education in the North American Jewish community.

Learning, Teaching and Curating: Situated Digital Experience in Museums - A free course during the 2020 Coronavirus global pandemic
MOFET International invites you to attend this free course which will help you create your own online museum to share with your students, colleagues and acquaintances. Museums are the repository of our cultural heritage and thus should become destinations to explore and learn scientific, historic and artistic themes. Students can feel and sense valuable artefacts and handmade objects that shape their lives. The main question is: How do we encourage our visitors to satisfy their curiosity in the museum? Experimental methods and their didactics are the core of this online course. We will see how all museums and heritage sites can be used as places of learning with the UNESCO Best Mobile Practice innovative technology – the Wandering Platform. The free course will begin on April 5 and will include seven synchronized meetings that will take place via the ZOOM™ platform. Notice: This is not a MOOC. As so, the number of participants is limited so hurry and sign up! Free registration ends on 02.04.2020.
