|This year, for the first time, education students at HUC-JIR's School of Education in New York will be presenting a portion of their Thesis/Project to the entire HUC-JIR community. The Senior Education Practicum is an opportunity to hear about the research education students have done, and how that research can be translated for use in the world of Jewish education. Like the Senior Sermon for rabbinic students and the Masters Recital for cantorial students, the Senior Education Practicum, for education students, is a culminating project, which demonstrates expertise in a particular area. It is surely a time when education students will want to share their work with their classmates and faculty. These presentations will take place in the Backman Conference Center at the New York School.
