Adar Ben-Eliyahu (University of Haifa) – Social Science

Dr. Adar Ben-Eliyahu is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Education at the University of Haifa. She joined the Faculty of Education after completing her PhD in Developmental Psychology from Duke University and two post-docs in Learning Research and Development Center (University of Pittsburgh) and The Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring (University Massachusetts at Boston). Dr. Ben-Eliyahu's interests lie in how learning processes (self-regulated learning) are influenced by different situations. She is curious about the influences of traumatic events on self-regulated learning as during emergency and disaster situations, formal learning is highly disturbed. By promoting learning during disaster and emergency situations, victims may be better equipped for post-traumatic growth.
