Current Research Projects:

Evaluation of the pedagogical reforms in Golan and Galilee schools 

This is a multiple-case study which includes multiple schools in the Golan and Galilee that are in the process of implementing a pedagogical change focusing on the constructivist approach. In all schools, initiatives are gradually being developed and include redesigning learning spaces. The objective of this research is to assess teachers' leading pedagogical perceptions and to examine in each school the implementation level through common pedagogical practices and the development of high-order thinking skills

Genetic-based health promotion nutrition intervention for families

The Golan is populated by two different groups- Druze and Jews, who are different in many aspects of their lives, including nutrition, health, and life styles. But obesity and its related diseases is one of the major public health challenges in both these cultures.  Thus, promoting a healthy lifestyle in the family will help to halt the increase in overweight, but will also improve physical health and prevent diseases. The objective of this research is to develop and evaluate family-tailored interventions based on genetics, to promote healthy lifestyles, and eating and physical activity habit change in both groups
