Adult Jewish Learning is a growth area of Jewish education.  Formal and informal frameworks operate in every segment of the organized Jewish community. Until recently, few academics and other researchers devoted themselves to the analysis of Adult Jewish education and the development of theory or theory of practice for this work. Analysis and critique of current models will be included. This course will address the goals, processes, and programs that currently constitute the field of practice and will help students apply theories from the field of adult psychology, the sociology of the adult Jewish community, teaching and learning, program planning and Jewish tradition which are potentially relevant to reflective practice.
