- Grant period: 2008
- Grantee link: INO – Institute of Informal Education
The Institute of Informal Education (INO), was established in 2005 with the goal of improving informal education for Russian-speaking Jews and increasing teachers' professionalism in Israel. The institute manages a number of educational projects, teacher training programs, as well as curricula and teaching material development.
In 2008, INO and Genesis Philanthropy Group organized a conference on informal education in Israel. Many Russian-speaking Israeli teachers, group leaders and school principals took part in the conference.
The results of the conference were:
- The creation of a unified database of existing educational organizations and individual teachers;
- An exchange of pedagogical techniques and methods;
- The development of an action plan on future steps in developing collaboration and new approaches in informal education by conference participants in charge of their respective organizations.
Genesis Philanthropy Group provided financial support for the conference.
