IB Regional Conference 2012 “The Culture of Learning”

At the heart of Houssam Eddine Hariri High School’s standards and practices is providing educators with enriching training experiences, and supporting them with a high sense of appreciation to mature professionally. On October 3, Rola Hallak, Rasha Hammoud , and I represented Houssam Eddine Hariri High School in the IB AEM Regional Conference 2012, which was held under the title “The Culture of Learning”, in Madrid, not only as participants, but also as presenters. Fortunately, we had the opportunity to contribute in this year’s conference and share expertise by representing school culture, engaging the participants in constructive discussions using interactive presentation techniques. Our presentation, entitled “Critical and Creative Thinking”, encouraged the audience to extend their understanding by focusing on the twenty first century demands, including the development of learners as thinkers and inquirers. The session has aimed to increase the participants’ awareness on the different viewpoints on thinking, what thinking is, how it works, the connection between critical and creative thinking, the development of thinking routines, the importance of nurturing problem solving, the responsible actions to build a community of thinkers, and metacognition.
This rewarding and professional experience has further cultivated our profession as educators and inspired us to set new goals and ambitions.
