Non-formal Education training for Ministry of Education liaisons

An interesting work-filled Friday at the Ministry of Education’s training for a group of 18 liaisons who will be overseeing the 49 Non-formal Education centers across Jordan. Today was spent editing the program’s formal guidelines, discussing the challenges the program currently faces, reviewing the responsibilities and tasks of each stakeholder, and of course, lunch and plenty of coffee breaks. Tomorrow wraps up the weekend-long workshop.


The Minster of Education opened the training with a few words.

About Laura McAdams

Laura McAdams is a Master’s student at University of Pennsylvania studying International Educational Development. Her experience in the MENA region includes 15 months as a Fulbright student researcher to Fez and Ifrane, Morocco in 2010 and 2011. Her project was interested in understanding the disconnect between the policies of technology usage in education and the reality of how these policies unfold in the classroom. Summer 2012 she returned to the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco to work with a women’s weaving cooperative. She is excited to learn more about other countries in the MENA region and issues involving education policy and reform, technology usage in curriculums and gender equality in education. One of Laura’s lifelong goals is to one day be able to sit down and leisurely read a newspaper in Arabic.
