Ta'allum teachers stress need for engaging learners at QF forum

THREE Ta'allum educators spoke at the national Teaching and Learning Forum sponsored by Qatar Foundation's Education Development Institute.
The conference took place at Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha recently.
The theme of the forum was engagement, with keynote speeches and workshops by international educationalists like Steve Francis and Joy Marchese.
Aimed at motivating teachers to reach for the highest level of student, staff and parent engagement and achievement, the forum offered participants the necessary tools to inspire young people to excel personally and academically.
Ta'allum delegates Jude Ensaff, Samera Kouser and Rukshana Begum spoke to visitors about the great work that has been achieved in Ta'allum academies over the past three years.
Ta'allum's contribution, a poster presentation entitled 'Moving learners from passive to engaged: a strategic approach' outlined the steps taken in the three academies to move Early Years and Primary classrooms from teacher-directed to learner-centred approach. The delegates further described the ongoing journey in Al Maha Academy for Girls, Al Maha Academy for Boys and Al Jazeera Academy to learner-driven classrooms.
Director of Education at Ta'allum Mohammed Saefan said,"At the three academies, we are harnessing our resources in training our students to become independent learners. We are acquiring new technology and instructional materials to promote enquiry-based learning. As our presentation described it at this forum, the learner is at the centre of the learning process."
