Teacher Professional Development Workshops

The Al Qasimi Foundation’s program of professional development courses has grown rapidly from just one course in 2010 to roughly a dozen different courses available this year. All workshops are bilingual (Arabic/English) and are free for teachers and education professionals working in Ras Al Khaimah. The overall professional development program is driven by teachers’ needs, and new courses are piloted before they become part of the Al Qasimi Foundation’s standard offerings. While experienced consultants develop the initial course materials, local educators rapidly become involved in the delivery of workshop content. The goal is to transition the delivery of each course entirely to local educators for peer-to-peer learning.

Participants are accepted into each course based on their commitment to attend all workshops, complete all in-class and homework assignments, and play an active role on the Ras Al Khaimah Teachers Network, a virtual learning platform through which course materials are hosted and collaborative exchanges take place.
