Ethical Creativity Institute

The Ethical Creativity Institute (ECI) is a weeklong professional development and curriculum design program created and hosted by The Brandeis School of San Francisco that combines the emergent fields of design thinking, tinkering, and constructionist education with Jewish traditions and ethical frameworks.

ECI started in the summer of 2016, and aims at developing a model of distributed innovation that will propel Jewish life, thinking, and engagement forward, while also developing new applications of Jewish ethics in the context of 21st century educational practices and approaches.

Bringing together a national cohort of practitioners from Jewish educational settings, and staffed by expert educators from early childhood to higher education who represent national and Bay Area institutions, this unique program encourages cross-pollination and collaboration among a range of subject matters, disciplines, and organizations.

Due to the ongoing global health crisis, we have decided to limit participation for ECI21 to our in-house teaching community. We hope to return to a global cohort of educators for ECI22 in June of 2022. Application information for ECI22 should be available in December 2021.
