Head of Teaching Innovation, Levinsky College of Education
Room 122, Center for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching (CIET)
A lecturer at the B.Ed., M.Teach/M.Ed. and Principal training programs, leading innovation in teaching & learning as head of Teaching innovation division at Levinsky College of Education. I have led the establishment of Future Learning Spaces – vision, integration and R&D. Prior to that, I led the foundation of the center for Simulations and Learning from Cases at the college, initiating its operation in pilot mode with an accompanying research.
Formerly a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto and the Fields Institute, my studies focused on promoting statistical reasoning among primary and secondary school students and designing learning environments that promote inquiry and thinking. Over the years I designed technology-enhanced learning environments for different audiences and was a senior designer at ORT Israel R&D center.
My encounters with educational technologies along the years has taken different perspectives and angles: As a designer of course-wares and R&D’ing books and curriculum; as a school teacher, ICT coordinator and a higher education lecturer; as a student and a researcher of the learning sciences; and as the head of teaching innovation with responsibility for the academic staff in the college. These experiences, together with the value for education have contributed to my research, teachings, projects and leadership roles, allowing paths of creativity and insights.
