The graduation of the first cohort of the PGCert Educational Issues & Impact course took place on Thursday 16 January 2020 at Crescent School in Lahore. The event was attended by Professor Matthew Smith, Vice-Dean of Research for the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences, Dr Ingeborg Birnie, course leader, and Angela de Britos, course tutor. The timing of the graduation coincided with the delivery of face-to-face teaching input to the second cohort of this course, which provides an opportunity for professional reflection, development, and for teachers working at Crescent School.
This is the first cohort of a four-year long contract between Crescent School in Lahore and the School of Education of Strathclyde to support teachers' professional development. It links to the University theme of global engagement and innovation and impact; creating opportunities for teachers in Lahore to engage with professional learning.
