Shalom! Welcome to OHEL: Online Hebrew Educators’ Lab
The purpose of OHEL is to prepare and support teachers who are interested in facilitating live online Hebrew School classes for the first time. The course models the strategies, pedagogy, and best practices for teaching Hebrew and Judaics to children online.
The course schedule was designed to provide a thorough introduction to online teaching for all those interested, while also offering ongoing support for facilitators who will be teaching their first online class while taking this course.
Participants who choose to complete this course for credit are entitled to receive a certificate of completion endorsed by The Board of Jewish Education of Metropolitan Chicago and Stephanie Burak of e-Hebrewschool. In order to qualify, participants must complete all assignments with passing grades. (Please see section 7, Evaluation and Grading Procedures for more information, and the rubrics below.) All others are considered auditors and will receive acknowledgment for their participation.
