More than 500 students from 17 schools in Qatar took part in the fourth Annual Open Day for Project-based Learning last week, which aims to provide a platform of knowledge sharing and exchanges.
The event was organised by the National Centre for Educational Development (NCED) at Qatar University College of Education (QU-CED) in collaboration with Reach Out To Asia (Rota).
“This annual event is a significant opportunity for teachers and students to exchange their knowledge and experiences in various disciplines,” NCED director Dr Abdullah Abu-Tineh said. 
“It also highlights the importance of conducting curriculum-related projects using cutting-edge technologies, which will contribute to ease the transition from traditional classrooms to a more active learning environment,” he added.
The participants presented 66 projects on various topics related to school subject curricula, according to organisers.
The event aims to showcase the projects conducted by students in independent schools supervised by NCED and Rota in private schools. Project-based learning is a teaching method where students gain knowledge and skills through working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.
Rota Higher Administration representative Mohamed al-Neema, as well as officials from Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education also attended the event.
