On November 16th and 17th SEK International School Qatar had the pleasure to host a 2 day workshop lead by Kath Murdoch entitled Teaching and Learning Through Inquiry.
Kath Murdoch is an experienced teacher, author, university lecturer and popular consultant who has worked for many years in schools throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, America and Europe. She is widely respected for her work in the field of inquiry based learning and integrative curriculum in which she has taught, researched and published for well over 25 years.
During the workshop she explained her inquiry-based approach for students, in itself, an approach that recognizes the importance of student voice and choice and of linking new learning to the existing knowledge, experiences and interests of the student.
The workshop was an enriching experience for all participants as they learnt new teaching strategies and techniques to help build students’ skills as inquirers.
We would like to thank Kath for sharing her insights and the 90 participants that came to the workshop from different schools in Qatar and abroad.
