Under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Chairperson, Qatar Museums (QM) is inviting teachers from the schools across Qatar to the first QM Teachers Council. Her Excellency will personally greet the teachers and invite them to engage more closely with the museums and provide their feedback on QM’s programs and resources.
Teachers’ opinions and needs are important to QM which strives to align its offerings and learning opportunities with their interests and the school curriculum. QM prides itself on its commitment to contributing to the educational landscape of the State of Qatar as a provider of informal education and life-long learning.
This is an opportunity for teachers to get to know QM, including all the museums and other entities under its umbrella, and to find out about learning resources that are available to them. All the exhibitions, educational programs and events for the coming 2016-2017 academic year will be announced. The venues which the teachers can use and the upcoming teacher training programs will also be presented. At the event, the teachers will be able to network with their colleagues, museum educators and other professionals, and to form long-lasting partnership with QM institutions.
