About The Collaboratory: A Center for Jewish Education at GW

The Collaboratory: The Center for Jewish Education’s purpose is to provide a locus of activity for understanding, organizing, planning, and preparing professionals for the contemporary Jewish education enterprise. Its theory of change derives from a classic view that new ideas need to be incubated, developed, field tested, experimented with, refined, implemented, refined again, and communicated—and then challenged—ultimately leading to further incubation, development, testing, and so on, all combining toward positive outcomes for the field.

The Collaboratory is housed in GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development
