Workshop creatively integrates life skills with math, physics

The Center for Continuing Education at Birzeit University, in cooperation with the Ministry of Higher Education, held a two-day workshop to develop learning objects in math and physics for 7th-10th grades. The workshop was held on March 12-13, 2018, and was attended by specialized teams that included supervisors, instructors, learning and technology designers, and gender specialists.

The workshop aimed to improve the school education process in Palestine by establishing learning objects that can be used in math and science classes.

Director of the Unit for Learning Innovation Dr. Osama Mimi highlighted the importance of the project nationally, saying, “Learning objects are designed to establish creative, atypical thought processes in the students, so that they can keep abreast of the demands and changes of this new age.”

The workshop is part of a project through which Birzeit University and the Ministry of Higher Education aim to establish a Learning Objects Bank, which will constitute the reference point for all grades and include interactive lessons that enhance life skills.
