The training and forum will be held virtually via the “Microsoft Teams” software and the “learning curve” electronic training platform. Activities of the specialised training week will continue for a week, while the forum, which is part of the specialised training, will be held on Monday and Tuesday.
The forum will focus on the effective teaching and learning process within the hybrid-learning environment, to support the capabilities of teachers in managing and implementing the teaching and learning process in an effective manner. It seeks to employ appropriate learning strategies and supportive technologies that enable teachers to achieve students’ learning goals and integrate them into the educational process. The Minister for Education stressed that the Ministry keeps on updating its educational patterns, especially in light of the current circumstances, placing the safety of students and educational staff at the top of its priorities.
“Applying the hybrid-learning techniques in the educational system achieves the highest standards of security and safety for the components of the educational process within an educational environment that meets the students’ educational needs,” Al Hammadi added.
