Please note that attendance at the Qudwa Ideas_Lab on 5 October is limited to selected attendees who have received a separate Ideas_Lab invitation. However, the outcomes of the Ideas_Lab will be presented at the Forum on 6 October and shared on the website.
ID will be requested at Registration Desk in the main entrance of Manarat Al Saadiyat.
On the occasion of World Teachers Day, on October 5, 100 education leaders, experts, and teachers will be immersed in a collaborative experience to reflect on the changing role of the teacher and to shape strategies to teach for global competence.
The work will take place inside the Qudwa Ideas_Lab—a creative space dedicated to collaboration and learning. To exchange and experimentation. To interaction and dialogue.
There will be no passive observers. Everyone will be actively engaged. Everyone will be invited to work, explore, discuss, share — and contribute their experience, knowledge, and ideas to charting a forward-looking agenda for the future of teaching in the UAE.
The Lab will be led by the same facilitation team that created similar formats at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos and the OECD Forum in Paris, and that teaches cutting-edge Leadership Development Programs at Harvard University and Harvard Business School.
The outcome of this work will be captured in a “Blueprint” that will represent the views of teachers and experts and will become a roadmap to help teachers in the UAE grow professionally, work collaboratively, and prepare their students for a dynamic and interconnected future.
