Doha Learning Days – Qatar’s first experiential learning festival – got under way on 14th November with a musical performance showcasing the nation’s culture against the backdrop of today’s world.
The six-day festival, which runs until November 19, is organised by World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), an initiative of Qatar Foundation and brings together more than 50 local entities. It is open to the whole community, free of charge.
Doha Learning Days aims to be a catalyst for education that focuses on re-centering learning human values, deconstructing existing learning frameworks, and a process of re-learning to build thriving societies. In collaboration with local and international partners, there will be a slew of different activities held during the fest.
These range from coding workshops with GoCode, to sports and wellness activities with Yama Yoga, LiveLife Qatar, and Brain Education Middle East. All of the activities have been designed to bring the focus of bringing new learnings and experiences to the community.
Activities also include exhibitions by Phone Art Qatar, workshops on sustainability with Torba Farmers Market, and presentations by Doha Film Institute. Each of the festival’s sessions relate to one of the event’s main themes: Deconstructing Existing Learning Frameworks; Re-centering Learning around Human Values; and Re-learning How to Build Thriving Societies.
It is taking place in the lead up to the WISE Summit 2019, which will be held at Qatar National Convention Centre from November 19 - 21, under the theme UnLearn, ReLearn: What it means to be Human.
