Abstract

The aim of the project is to investigate the impact of a professional development programme that is both research-based and follows a sustained in-classroom approach into the teaching of science and mathematics in Qatari schools. The programme uses two teaching tools derived from research. One tool is Exploratory Talk, a teaching strategy to encourage peer discussion in small groups (e.g. Murphy, Wegerif & Fisher, 2010; Mercer, Wegerif & Dawes, 1999). The other tool is related to inquiry-based learning using digital technologies called WebQuest (e.g. Calder, 2011; Salsovic, 2007). The focus is on the use of these didactic strategies in Qatari primary and middle school science and mathematics classrooms.
