Herzog College has awarded academic research grants to four teams from the College to fund practical research into different aspects of contemporary pedagogy. They include research studies into the academic and religious background of teaching staff in the Haredi sector, the use of collaborative group testing, the impact of learning spaces, and the implementation of innovative pedagogy in education courses. The College has allocated these grants, worth a total of 30,000 NIS, to encourage the publication of academic articles by their staff.
In addition, 20 academic staff from Herzog College have had their papers selected for presentation at the quadrennial International Conference on Teacher Education in June 2023, organized by Machon Mofet.
Welcoming the grants, the President of Herzog College, Rabbi Professor Yehuda Brandes said: “We are excited by the academic level and practical relevance of the research projects being undertaken by our teaching staff. It clearly demonstrates that Herzog College is constantly involved in testing and verifying the latest pedagogy methodologies, for the long-term benefit of our students, to equip them to become the best possible classroom teachers. We are proud of our academic staff for combining cutting-edge research with their teaching commitments, and contributing to the raising of teaching standards in Israel.”
