Riyadh Teachers’ Forum
Baroness Greenfield spoke at the Riyadh Teachers’ Forum in August. This event is designed to accelerate change in the Saudi Arabian education system. Teachers from around the globe will gather in Riyadh to share experiences and expertise with their Saudi Arabian colleagues, discussing the latest in best-practice approaches to a range of issues – everything from teaching 21st century skills to engaging parents in the learning process. Through a series of keynote presentations, panel-based workshop sessions and focus group discussions, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Education – with input provided by the OECD – hopes to revitalise the country’s teaching profession and equip teachers with the necessary tools to prepare their students for the challenges of the 21st century.
