In 19th of January 2022 number of Khutwa community teachers across the West Bank and Jerusalem, as well as several Qaddumi Foundation alumni from the Gaza Strip joined the OEP trainers at the kickoff session of the pre-programme mentor training. The mentor training will be followed by launching a four-month “Acting as an Innovator” training program for Palestinian teachers in February 2022. The program aims to empower 400 Palestinian teachers from the West Bank and Gaza over the course of three years.
The Acting as an Innovator program aims to empower 400 Palestinian teachers from the West Bank and Gaza over the course of three years, and spark a positive and innovative digitally inclined development mindset among teachers in Palestine. During the programme, the teachers are equipped with tangible tools to help spark their imagination to identify challenges in their learning environment, and design and develop solutions to the challenges in the form of powerful and impactful learning projects with a digital dimension. In this way, impact is maximised throughout the entire learning ecosystem.
OEP is extremely happy and excited to be part of this important initiative with Khutwa and Qaddumi Foundation!
