Professional Development Targets MENA’s Teacher Leaders
DUBAI, UAE, April 29, 2019 – On Friday, October 4, and Saturday, October 5, MENA region teachers and teams will convene in Dubai as part of an initiative of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) Connected Community in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) called the Teach to Lead Summit. During a summit, teams of educators convene to think deeply about a problem of practice – an idea for how to improve learning in their school or country context – and to work as a team to plan solutions. Organized by KDSL Global, a UAE-based education company, the Teach to Lead Summit seeks to allow participating teams to:
- Share ideas and best practices and learn from examples of existing teacher leadership efforts;
- Identify common challenges and create concrete, actionable teacher leadership plans to address them locally;
- Network and build relationships with other educators and leaders in their region; and
- Identify promising ideas for follow-up support through future engagement events.
Dubai based ASCD Emerging Leader Ashley Green said,“The Teach to Lead Summit will provide the educational leaders throughout the MENA region with the platform to grow and build their ideas while receiving support and input from global community stakeholders.”
Educators, school leaders, and teams from the MENA region are encouraged to apply early to attend. More information can be found at http://www.gccascd.com/teachtolead.
