Educational Development Institute

Education Development Institute (EDI) serves as a centre of excellence in professional learning and development, by supporting the growth and development of the educational community within Qatar and internationally.

EDI supports educators in Qatar by hosting the educational community, including faculty, administrators, and staff who are seeking to engage in the best and most promising practices which have been designed to improve student achievement and increase success.

EDI will also target its professional development programs to all schools in Qatar, especially those under the umbrella of the Ministry of Education, as well as schools in the Middle East. This involves a clear understanding of the local context, a recognition of the place of culture in the design of classroom activities, resources and methodologies adapted to students for whom English is a Second/Learning Language and a recognition of the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the 21st century challenges facing future leaders and decision makers.
