Beit Berl Inaugurates Hub for Social and Educational Entrepreneurship

​​​​Recognizing the important role of institutions of higher education - and the unique position of Beit Berl as a leading college of educators, innovative teaching methodologies, and shared society education, Beit Berl College launched the Hub for Social and Educational Entrepreneurship. The July 1 event brought together 80 visionaries – students and graduates, members of the faculty and administration, social and educational entrepreneurs – with fascinating lectures and lively discussions, a budding social entrepreneurial community, and announcement of two Beit Berl faculty members selected by the Mofet Institute to participate in the Development of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Academic Institutions program. The event hosted an inspiring exhibit by a dozen social and educational entrepreneurial initiatives by students, graduates and members of the community. The exhibit included TARASA, the online database of memories; Municipal-Academia, an academic initiative by Beit Berl in cooperation with the municipality of Kfar Yona; EduSelf, online learning in micro crediting; Bitter/Sweet, HaMidrasha’s film program for Arab and Jewish pupils; Ingenio​, learning through gaming experience; and more.

Beit Berl graduates comprise 20% of educators in Israel’s secular education system. With such a strong influence on Israeli education, we have a social responsibility and commitment to educate and train our students, faculty, administration, and graduates with 21st century knowledge and skills to have real impact on our social and educational challenges. The Hub at Beit Berl College will spur social entrepreneurship among diverse communities often overlooked in the innovation equation. The Hub will employ innovative tools to challenge the existing system, and implement new social and educational models college-wide. It will educate, train and assist in the implementation of social entrepreneurial approaches, language, tools and initiatives among Beit Berl students, faculty, administration, graduates, and communities surrounding the College, to collaboratively advance social entrepreneurial initiatives. In so doing, the Hub will level the conventional academic hierarchy and cross cultural and socio-economic boundaries. Stay tuned! More to come...
