2018 Winter Training Institute


January 26-27, 2018 - The American International School of Muscat, Oman
NESA's Winter Training Institute is a specialty conference for educators. The program is based on an "extended institute design" so that delegates are together with the same presenter for the entire two-day conference. This format allows time for skill development, in-depth exploration and the establishment of partnerships/networks.
