Reading from the Torah

Celebrating Shabbat in the Colorado mountains.

Gain the theory, philosophy, and latest methodology to put your passion into practice with a Concentration in Experiential Jewish Education (EJE).

  • What changes when students learn outdoors?
  • How do we measure learning if the “lesson” is a game?
  • What goals can be set and met if the aim is affective rather than cognitive?

Explore these questions with fellow students who are imagining ways to incorporate EJE priniciples into new settings. You will hone your understanding of the principles, practice, and academic theory of EJE and put theory into practice by creating and implementing experiential learning programs in internship placement settings. 

Center your internships, course projects, and capstone on experiential Jewish education and participate in field trips to learn from local educators who are on the cutting edge in this field.

Fan the flame of your passion for experiential Jewish education and turn the whole world into your classroom!
