Qushiyot Alumni Network
The 12 months of your time in the Qushiyot Israel Education Fellowship may have ended but the support and learning with colleagues can continue in this network. This network will function as a Community of Practice comprised of Qushiyot alumni who share a passion for developing and teaching high quality Israel educational experiences that challenge and engage our students. We will learn from each other as we expand, deepen and improve our work in Israel Education.
PREREQUISITE: Open only to alumni of the Qushiyot Israel Education Fellowship - Pilot, Aleph, Bet cohorts, Gimmel and Dalet cohorts.
Depending on the location of the registrants, our gatherings will be either virtual or in person, or a blend of both.
