The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies invites you to join us for the next Schusterman Seminar, “Side by Side: Nurturing Intercultural Competence among Palestinian and Jewish Teachers in Israel,” with Dr. Michal Muszkat-Barkan. This presentation, based on Dr. Michal Muszkat-Barkan research, will focus on the learning outcomes of an in-service professional development (PD) program for Palestinian and Jewish teachers in Jerusalem. What, specifically, did participants learn from their experience in an intercultural PD program, and how were they personally and professionally affected by their encounters with the other? This study demonstrates the potential of PD programs to develop teachers’ sociopolitical awareness of their professional identity and practice in a conflicted city like Jerusalem.

Dr. Michal Muszkat-Barkan is an associate professor of Jewish education (parallel track) at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. She is the director of the Department of Education and Professional Development at the college’s Jerusalem campus and the founder of the Teachers’ Lounge program. Her fields of research include teachers’ mentoring and professional development, teacher ideologies, multiculturalism, and pluralism in education.

Part of the Schusterman Seminars Series: advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students, and open to all, presenting the latest research in Israel Studies to the Schusterman Center community and beyond.
