Adva Dinur

Assistant Professor Managerial Sciences

B.A., Hebrew University (Israel)Ph.D., Temple University

Description

Adva Dinur has been an assistant professor at the Brooklyn Campus since 2004. Her main research interest is capturing the illusive nature of tacit organizational knowledge and how it transfers within organizations. She also truly enjoys combining her research and her teaching. For instance, she received a best-paper award for her work within the classroom, where she measures her own effectiveness as a teacher in achieving learning goals. Prof. Dinur often uses cases in her classes, and besides publishing cases herself, she also does research on finding tools that improve the use of cases in the classroom. Professor Dinur holds a Ph.D. from Temple University (Philadelphia, Pa.) and a B.A. from Hebrew University (Jerusalem, Israel). Outside of the Campus, she volunteers at SFK (www.sfk.org), plays the piano, rides motorcycles when she can, and studies natural/vegan nutrition and the spiritual teachings of various scholars.
