Qatar Academy Doha hosted over 250 faculty members from four Qatar Foundation schools at the 2014 Mini NESA Conference, an annual professional development and networking event where educators share expertise and ideas with each other. The presentations cover a multitude of areas involving both the teaching and learning processes; they also feature research-based best practices that focus on student learning.
According to William Lee Wong, Academic Coordinator for 21st Century Learning and NESA Representative of Qatar Academy Doha, participants could each attend two from the 48 workshops available. Wong also added: “We are very excited that we have workshops in both English and Arabic and our very own Director and Senior School Principal (Michael Hitchman) is also delivering workshops.” Qatar Academy Doha teachers were slated to present or co-present 32 of these workshops and Wong highlights that “there was a variety of workshops for Math, Language, IB curriculum and 21st century integration. In addition, we had workshops tailored for early education, primary, middle and high school staff attendees”.
