We offered over 430 teachers across the Middle East the opportunity to improve their skills at Cambridge Global Learners events last month. The roadshows took place between 17 and 24 April in the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and Egypt.
Sessions were led by Helen Rees-Bidder and Mike Ollerton, both are leading education specialists who work with Cambridge, as well as other educational boards in the UK and globally. Designed to be interactive, the sessions included group and individual activities enabling Cambridge teachers to work together and learn different approaches that will challenge students to think more creatively in the classroom.
Waseem Al Hanbali, Regional Director for Cambridge Assessment International Education, said: “We believe that supporting teachers in their professional development leads to improved outcomes for learners. We therefore strive to equip teachers with pedagogically sound teaching methods through our training and events programme.”
Shala Noufe, a teacher at the Institute of Applied Technology in UAE said: “I really enjoyed this hands-on training and the resources the trainer gave us. I look forward to trying them all in my classes.”
Ghada Gerges Shafeak, a teacher at El Salam Private Language School in Egypt said: “It was an incredible training course. I picked up many useful techniques that I can teach to my students. Knowing about active learning will help me a lot in my teaching.”
We are planning to hold two more roadshows in countries in the MENA region during the coming academic year. These planned sessions will focus on Active Learning for Sciences and Maths. We will share more details with schools soon.
