The International Center for University Teaching of Jewish Civilization (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) in cooperation with Rothberg International School – Division of Hebrew Language Instruction and the Academy of the Hebrew Language is now accepting applications for this year session of the Continuing Workshop on University Teaching of the Hebrew Language:
Teaching Hebrew as a Second Language Today: Audiences, Materials, Methods (Jerusalem, July 30 – August 3, 2017)
The International Center’s workshops on University Teaching of the Hebrew Language are designed to meet the interests of the professors of Hebrew in universities outside of Israel and to provide theoretical knowledge and practical tools relevant for their teaching. The workshop includes meetings with scholars and Hebrew teachers from Israel and abroad, as well as sessions in small groups of colleagues held in an informal setting, aimed to promote fruitful discussion and interchange of ideas.
This year the workshop is arranged in junction with the Pre-Congress of the Division of Hebrew Language Instruction of the Rothberg International School for Overseas Students. The workshop participants will attend the Pre-Congress (at no additional cost), and will have an opportunity to hold joint discussion on various issues connected to Hebrew teaching, conducted by the Division teachers. The workshop program will also include a visit and lectures at the Academy Language (the co-organizer of this workshop). In the varied sessions the workshop participants are also welcome to present the results of their teaching experience.
- Participation is limited to a small number of university teachers of Hebrew language, chosen from applicants from all over the world.
- The costs of accommodation, board, and travel to and from Israel are the responsibility of participants or their sponsoring institutions.
- The fee for participation in the workshop is $350 (in case of financial need, assistance is available upon application. Please submit your reasoned request for financial assistance together with your registration to the program).
