Dr. Yizchak Gonen: From Bonding to Bridging in Divided Community

Date(s): Oct. 4, 2012 - Oct. 4, 2012
Event Time: 7:30 PM

Dr. Yizchak Gonen, Israeli Scholar and Education specialist, will present on the topic of "From Bonding to Bridging in Divided Community," which will address the Israeli case and experience of building social capital to create communitarianism, an ideology that emphasizes the connection between the individual and the community.

Dr. Gonen comes to Walsh University as part of a new project, The Global Learning Partnership, that includes, in addition to Walsh, The Ohio State University, University of Colorado at Denver, Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts, and Oranim College in Israel. This project provides faculty and students with the opportunity to interact collaboratively using state-of -the -art technologies such as videoconferencing and an array of multimedia tools to create 'live' classrooms to explore topics of mutual interest to them and their practical classroom work.

The lecture is due, in part, to a collaboration of the Walsh University Jewish/Catholic Studies Institute, the Global Learning Partnership and the Walsh University Division of Education and Outreach. Dr. Gonen's lecture is eligible for credit in the Walsh University Livelong Learning Academy.

The presentation is free and open to the public. It will be held in Walsh University's Barrette Business and Community Center.
