Capacity Building in Higher Education

PROMENTORS PROJECT (under capacity building)

Levinsky Participants: Dr. Tami Reuveni, Dr. Drorit Ram Markovitz, Dr. Einat Bracha, Dr. Alona Forkosh-Baruch

The PROMENTORS project, funded through Erasmus + of the European Union aims to advance the innovative MIT (Multiplayer Induction Teams) model which  combines mentor training originating in the EU that emphasizes peer group mentoring, group learning, and collaborative meaning making.

An extension of the Proteach project, Promentors is based on a partnership between academia, the beginning teachers’ schools, and related policy makers who meet once a month in the school to discuss pedagogical and managerial issues that arise from the beginning teachers’ work. This model underscores the involvement and influence of mentors in the induction process of beginning teachers. Mentors become part of the school landscape and are actively engaged in the daily processes of the school, thus offering more support to beginning teachers and facilitating teachers’ professional development.

10 Israeli institutes of higher education and 4 EU partners supported by the Israeli Ministry Of Education will develop and pilot 18 mentors training MITs in an accredited, certified, mentor training course ready to be implemented in the Israeli educational system. This project will impact the policies of the Israeli Ministry of Education and consequently its institutions of higher education.
