WTI 2017 - NESA Teachers in Bahrain

NESA's Winter Training Institute is a specialty conference for educators with an "extended institute design" so delegates are together with the same presenter for the entire two-day event. This format allows time for skill development, in-depth exploration and the establishment of partnerships/networks.

This year's NESA Winter Training Institute took place on the campus of NESA member Riffa Views International School (RVIS) in Bahrain, January 20-21, 2017.

On the first day, RVIS Director Kurt Nordness and NESA Executive Director David Chojnacki welcomed delegates and introduced the WTI speakers during a plenary session in the school's theater.

Delegates then attended one of the following two-day institutes led by leading education experts:

  • From Testing to Teaching: Using MAP Data to Inform Instruction (advanced level)Julie Bredy & Lesley Tait
  • Mindfulness in Education: Teaching with Body, Mind and HeartKrysten Fort-Catanese
  • Designing Standards-Based Assessments in MS/HS Social StudiesMyron Dueck
