Teachers are a critical factor in determining the level and quality of students’ education, particularly in the fields of science and technology. The level of education in a country is ultimately determined by the level of its teachers. Keeping in mind that one teacher meets a large number of students in the course of his/her career, their influence on the scientific and technological education of all levels is vital.
The Teachers' Unit plans and performs a variety of activities designed to keep the teachers updated on the latest pedagogies, innovations, advancements and ideas in science, technology and mathematics teaching. It organizes disciplinary and interdisciplinary training programs, national and international seminars, workshops and conferences. All of the Unit's activities are fully coordinated and recognized by the Israeli Ministry of Education.
