Tuesday 22 March 2016 to Saturday 26 March 2016

A training of trainer’s session in Amman, organised by the British Council for six trainers from Gaza universities, will take place from 22-26 March 2016. Improved understanding and skills in positive dialogue gained from this training can then be cascaded to university students.

The training will focus on core thinking techniques advocated by De Bono and how teachers can integrate these techniques that encourage creativity and critical thinking.

This project is based on last year’s successful experience that brought together local university students and UK counterparts in partnership with British-Arab Exchange in the UK (BAX).  The event had a significant impact on overcoming stereotyping and inspiring students to become more engaged and active in their communities.
