Join our digital masterclass on Advancing Education Through EXPO and find out more about our Education programmes running in January and September 2022.

Abstract

EXPO 2020 is committed to “Connecting minds, Creating the future” through all of its many educational activities. Join us to learn how to harness the vast opportunities EXPO provides for teachers and students to advance education in the UAE and to explore how the University of Birmingham Dubai and our Education programmes are actively involved in promoting this vision. 

The event will also be a great opportunity to:

  • Speak directly to University academics teaching on the School of Education programmes
  • Find out more about our January and September 2022 intake and our generous Scholarships

This event will take place on Zoom and a link will be shared upon booking.

Meet the Expert 

Professor Dawn England, Head of the Dubai Education Department and Programme Director for MA Education (Leadership)

 Dawn’s scholarship has been guided by the notion that where a child is born should not dictate their educational opportunities afforded to them, and her work has pursued how to understand barriers to education globally with a key focus on gender, parental beliefs, and peer experiences. She has been involved in research projects in 17 countries across 4 continents and was awarded the US National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship for her international work studying the influences of gender development on education internationally.
