The fourth edition of ‘Living Arabic’ a knowledge exchange programme organised by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) brought together several educators . Over 100 Arabic teachers exchange best teaching practices with each other through workshops.
Started as a conference in 2015-16 the agenda focused on teachers being able help each other through exchanging experiences and best practices. The success encouraged this being organised on a larger scale during the forthcoming years. There was a huge requirement of Arabic teachers in pedagogy, learning methodology and alignment of different curriculums.
The third year saw integration of ‘Action Research’. To decide upon the best teaching strategy, the teachers made two groups of students to assess whether new strategies discussed during the Living Arabic workshop was most effective or the regular method. In all six schools participated in this.
