One or two days a week, students participate in the practical teaching experience, according to their chosen teacher-training track. They get to observe as well as participate in teaching lessons within the PDS (Professional Development School) model. Students work on long-term projects that involve collaboration between students, mentor teachers and pedagogical advisors.
Our program allows students to participate in a variety of learning environments and experience different instructional delivery methods. Distance education is an integral part of our program in order to provide students with the opportunity to develop skills and strategies required for online teaching and learning. Additionally, this mode of instruction allows students to study some of the courses on their own schedule.
English is one of the preferred subjects of the Israeli Ministry of Education. Students studying in the English Department towards a teaching certificate may be eligible for a scholarship. Please check the criteria for eligibility and exact amounts of scholarships. Additionally, the English Department offers a number of merit scholarships and awards based on academic achievements, diligence and community service.
We give students personal guidance and support in both the coursework and practical experience. The small class sizes, flexible schedules and excellent teaching make our teacher education program unique. Our online journals highlight some recent student and departmental achievements.
