Eight teachers from Awsaj Academy, along with other teachers from Qatar Academy, The American School of Doha and The International School of London Qatar presented a total of 18 sessions on Tuesday afternoon.

The Awsaj presentations, which were conducted mainly in Arabic, included Discipline the Secondary Classroom by Issam Qased; Amazing Words by Manal Al Absi and Amal Al Hafi: Awsaj way of teaching (Direct Instruction) by Reem Al Ahmed and Eiman Ismaeel; How to Motivate Even the Most Challenging Students by Dina Zebib and Coaching by Lamya Beydoun and Jeff Coleman.
