The National Center for Educational Development (NCED) at Qatar University College of Education (QU-CED) held the Second Lesson Study Project forum recently, aiming to highlight the progress and accomplishments of the project during the past four years.
The event was organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and sponsored by Marubeni Company. It is part of the ongoing collaboration between CED and Tokyo Gakugei University.
Attendees included Dr Akihiko Takahashi a member of WALS Executive Committee.
Teachers presented a model lesson and this was followed by a panel discussion led by Dr Takahashi focussing on observations of pupil learning during the lesson.
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education of the state of Qatar is committed to professional development of teachers through various opportunities including Lesson Study. Observers of the Lesson Study were able to see at first hand the very positive impact of the practice on teacher professional learning.
