JPB-RETORIKA EXCEL INSTITUTE STRIKES GOLD: Teacher training program in UK well received

August 22, 2019

Between July 21-29, in partnership with Retorika for Multiculturalism, the University of Cambridge, and the Oranim Academic College of Education, JPB operated the second-ever EXCEL Institute for 22 outstanding Israeli Jewish and Arab teachers. The program featured a mix of workshops on peacebuilding, English language curriculum design, dialogue, touring, and cross-cultural exchange. Accredited by the Israeli Ministry of Education, participants returned to Israel and are now engaging in follow-up programming, assignments, and meetings through the use of the Project ECHO Telementoring program. Just last week, the US Embassy in Tel Aviv hosted our group for their summer debrief meeting.
