Educational Challenges in a Multicultural Society: The Case of Israel

Nitza Davidovitch


The academic world has not yet determined its attitude to multidisciplinary, which leads to a lack of institutionalization and regulation of multidisciplinary in research and in curricular development. The fashion in the 1990s has become a fact, yet we are stilled faced with the challenge: Academic institutions offer their students multidisciplinary programs, considered to be less prestigious, and at the same time the institutions have a controversial attitude to multidisciplinary research, and specifically scholars working in diverse areas of knowledge. The world outside the academe has already decided that multidisciplinary is the need of the hour; the academe itself is still trying to hold on to both ends of the rope.

Key words: Challenges; Multicultural society; Higher education

Résumé Le monde universitaire n’a pas encore déterminé son attitude envers multidisciplinaire, ce qui conduit à un manque d’institutionnalisation et la réglementation des pluridisciplinaire dans la recherche et au développement curriculaire. La mode dans les années 1990 est devenue une réalité, pourtant, nous sommes calmés relever le défi: Les établissements d'enseignement offrent à leurs étudiants des programmes multidisciplinaires, considérés comme moins prestigieux, et en même temps les institutions ont une attitude controversée à la recherche multidisciplinaire, et plus particulièrement chercheurs travaillant dans divers domaines de la connaissance. Le monde extérieur du monde universitaire a déjà décidé que multidisciplinaire est la nécessité de l'heure, le milieu universitaire lui-même est encore en essayant de tenir aux deux extrémités de la corde.
