On 5.9.2012, the Technologies in Education Program hosted its students and faculty for an academic year opening event. Prof. Yael Kali, acting program head, opened the morning with warm words. Afterwards, the program was blessed by welcoming words from the Dean of the Faculty, Prof. Lily Orland-Barak, as well as head of the Department, Prof. Arie Kaisel. The students were given an overview of the courses for the year, and met our two new faculty members, Dr. Sarit Barzilai and Dr. Oren Golan. Afterwards, the students broke into small discussion groups. 

Following lunch, new students took part in an activity to get to know each other, which was the first steps in building the learning community. This was done using our Google Apps domain, where the students had to collaboratively build web-pages about one another and later present their partner to the entire group. Students already in their second year of studies also met with the head of the program in order to address their hopes and challenges for the upcoming school year. 

We wish everyone a restful few weeks before the beginning of the academic year!
