CTLR Organizes Workshop on Science Knowledge and Applications in TIMSS
In collaboration with the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS), GUST’s Center for Teaching, Learning, and Research (CTLR), organized a workshop on science knowledge and applications in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The workshop was led by Mrs. Ahlam Behbehani, leading expert in Science Education, for 40 elementary and middle teachers in local private schools.
The objective of the workshop was to introduce TIMSS and its purpose. The workshop provided examples of various science questions, and went through effective teaching strategies that would help students solve science problems and allow them to think critically. The workshop also took teachers through the different challenges and obstacles they might face, pairing them with a myriad of techniques to overcome them.
