CIE Professional Development Workshops: Comments and Evaluations
Each year, we are humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we receive from participants of our workshops. Click here to read comments sent to us by our workshop alumni.
"A reputation precedes me; as an Israeli, I know it all. I thought I always had “enough” information in my basic education to be an effective teacher when explaining the history of the Jewish people and the creation of the state of Israel.
Well, the week in Atlanta proved how wrong I am; teaching me more than I had known in a manner that kept me intrigued and engaged all week."

At the end of each one-week workshop, participants are asked to provide a review of the workshop. Evaluations are completed for each presenter, as well as an overall written assessment of the workshop.
- In June 2012, we conducted an oral review of the workshop in the last session, where, in particular, we asked participants,
"What did this workshop do for you a) professionally and b) personally?"
- In 2006, The AVI CHAI Foundation conducted an external evaluation of our one-week workshops on modern Israel.
