WISE Helps School Leaders Improve Student Learning

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) recently led a workshop as part of its Empowering Leaders of Learning (ELL) program, which is designed to support school leaders in improving student outcomes.
The ELL workshops, held in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and the Education Development Institute (EDI) of Qatar Foundation (QF), are part of a series presented over a period of eight months. The program is intended to strengthen leadership capabilities through working to improve specific areas in student learning. The program follows two separate tracks, one for the Ministry’s ‘Maharaty’ independent primary schools; and one for the QF schools held in collaboration with EDI. The ELL program is made possible in part by ExxonMobil Qatar.

The workshop was led by Dr. Asmaa Al-Fadala, Director of Research, WISE, and by Dr. Simon Breakspear, Founder and CEO of the Australia-based Agile Schools. The objective is to support the participating school leaders with strategies and tools to improve teaching practices and student learning outcomes. The session encourages educators to pursue an evidence-informed focus and to apply research on effective teaching.

The ELL program reflects the continued goal of WISE, part of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), to support local schools in their efforts to improve.The program encourages principals and administrators to apply guidance and strategies, collaborate, and share experiences toward improved student learning outcomes.
