Bezalel’s Art and Design Teaching Center

Informed by Bezalel’s unique teaching and learning needs and characteristics, the Academy’s Art and Design Teaching Center was planned to create a professional and continuous foundation for the development of teaching at the Academy. Much like art and design, the Center considers teaching to be a creative, dynamic, reflective and knowledge-based practice. The Center encourages the development of teaching and learning processes, while leading innovative initiatives within Bezalel and in collaboration with various Israeli and international academic institutions.

An independent team in the Bezalel ecosystem, the Center works closely with the Academy’s academic and administrative units with the belief that the formulation of sustainable teaching requires a holistic, multidisciplinary, creative and open approach. Through its members – who are themselves lecturers in Bezalel departments – the Center is involved in all aspects of teaching and learning in the Academy, systematically examining the challenges various academic units face and responding to emerging needs.

The Center works in three corresponding and complementary spheres:

  • Teaching development – as a framework for the formulation of teaching tools, ideas and skill for lecturers
  • Teaching management – as a framework for the professional development of academic directors in academic training, teaching and learning evaluation; curricula construction and evaluation; and academic leadership
  • Education research – as a framework for the facilitation and support of teaching and learning research, allowing lecturers to systematically examine various teaching methods with the aim of developing new practices.

Bezalel is a learning community whose different partners – and primarily faculty members and students – engage in an ongoing exploration of pedagogies and in shaping diverse, varied and new learning experiences. The Center wishes to involve as many stakeholders as possible in the research and development of teaching and learning at the Academy and share the knowledge, tools and ideas formulated within it with as wide an audience as possible.
