SIG Day on September 8 at MOFET Institute in Tel Aviv

Scroll down for the program


ETAI has recently established a Special Interest Group (SIG) dedicated to Teacher Training and Development (TT&D). Among the aims of the TT&D SIG are to generate ETAI conference sessions on a higher academic level for the general teacher population and see more teacher trainers and college instructors participate in the conference.


Statement of Purpose

 Create a forum for discourse on TT&D

 Broaden ETAI’s reach to a larger population of TTs

 Create a community of TT’s within the wider framework of ETAI



A three-pronged approach:

 TTs as teachers: more TTs giving sessions at ETAI conferences

 TTs as peers of Ts: exchanging ideas

 TTs as life-long learners: making sure our conferences and publications address the needs of TTs.



College and university instructors, teacher trainers in the pedagogical (pisga) centres, inspectors and counsellors.
