The ISL Qatar Community strongly believes experiential learning enables our students to develop knowledge, skills and values that are not typically learned within the four walls of the traditional classroom setting.
Experiential learning contains the following elements:
- Reflection and critical thinking
- Decision-making and taking responsibility
- Engaging intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially and physically
- Learning from natural consequences, mistakes and successes
I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand
With this in mind, Week Without Walls was designed to contain a wide range of opportunities that will provide all of our students from G5 to G11 with access to a more progressive form of learning.
Starting 24 January to 28 January 2021, groups of ISL Qatar students will embark on various journeys that will enhance their understanding about cultures, collaboration, languages, sustainability and service.
