Who/what do you want to see at Bett MEA 2019?
Case studies, success stories, and speakers from the field
What should participants expect to hear in your session / what topics will you cover?
How we bridge the gap between the education system and the workplace. The power of partnerships, and how we should partner together to achieve our overall goal of empowering youth to own their economic success.
Why do you think global collaboration is so important in education?
Because it opens our eyes to success factors that could support and enrich our efforts. Collaboration in general is a key for success. We all should join forces together to develop and enhance global and regional educational systems.
Who or what inspires you in education?
What inspires me personally are teachers who give endlessly despite all their challenges and obstacles either in poverty pockets or conflict areas.
Why is Bett MEA so important for educational transformation in the region?
Because it offers a platform to connect with practitioners and decision makers from all over the world, and exchange challenges and good practices.
How does the world deal with the need for more teachers and new approaches to learning?
I think with the digital movement, the need for the human element is no longer on its peak. Education is offered now through different platforms that connect one to many. Having said that, I still do believe that the human element provides its power and impact, as direct interaction would help deliver the message faster and more impactfully.
