Every year SEK International School Qatar develops a varied workshop programme as a part of our ongoing commitment to professional development, sharing best practices in education with our colleagues alongside educators from Qatar schools and other schools within the Gulf region.
This weekend we hosted 160 participants attending 4 different workshops; the inspirational workshop leaders came from the USA, Australia and Abu Dhabi, each one bringing her own passion and wealth of experience to share with the teachers during the weekend. Most of the attendees were from IB schools, they are life-long learners and want to share, learn and grow as professionals in their field.
The workshop led by Carol Ann Tomlinson attracted the most participants focusing on Quality Differentiation: what, why and how. Early years professionals had the opportunity to work with Fiona Zinn about Concepts in the Early Years, other educators were interested to learn more about Mindfulness with Elissa Ballard and the last group led by Tanya Elmer focused on Concepts in the Primary and Middle school.
SEK Qatar will continue to offer such opportunities, our Professional Development programme will be published shortly online via our website.
