Qatar University Young Scientists Center (QUYSC) participates in the activities of the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE 2021) this month by conducting workshops and interactive dialogues.

The WISE 2021 summit, which was held under the theme 'Generation Unmute: Reclaiming our Future through Education,' attracts thousands of innovators and stakeholders in education from all over the world to attend one of the largest conferences that impacts and reshapes the future of education.

The center's first workshop 'Methodologies to Foster Learning and Innovation,' presented the methods and strategies developed to achieve an environment that stimulates innovation and creativity among students. The workshop also clarified the multiplicity of educational norms used to promote student centered learning, and showcased how the center modified its activities to overcome the challenges in education during the Covid-19 pandemic. The workshop was attended by many interested in the field of education from the State of Qatar and other countries such as the United States of America, Palestine and Djibouti.

The center also presented an interactive dialogue 'Integrating university students as partners in education for the K-12,' which attracted the attention of over 100 participants from different countries of the world. Through the dialogue and discussions that followed, another aspect of innovation in education emerged in making its university students as mentors and educators for younger students from the primary, preparatory and secondary levels. This innovative strategy helps increase student learning efficiency and enhances the role of university students in positively influencing education.

In addition, the center's team received an invitation to participate in a podcast prepared by students of mass communication at Northwestern University in Qatar, after they were attracted by the center's activities through their participation in one of the workshops offered by the center.

The QUYSC was awarded the WISE Award for Innovation in Education in 2015 for the Al-Bairaq Program, which it started in 2010, with the aim of creating an educational environment that improves learning outcomes and provides a practical learning environment for students to participate in scientific research and capacity building programs. The outcome of the program was a major leap in the human competencies qualified to study the scientific disciplines in demand in the Qatari and global labor market.

Prof. Noora Al-Thani, Director of the Young Scientists Center, said, "We are always happy to participate in conferences concerned with education issues, and we are keen to participate to spread our experience in this field for more than a decade. We are also accused of expanding the modern educational methods and methodologies that we presented in workshops and dialogues, and participation in the WISE conference is a unique opportunity for teaching, learning and broadening perceptions and horizons."
