University representatives and education experts from across Asia were today given an insight into Qatar Foundation’s (QF) unique model of learning, as the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) Education Workshop drew to a close.

The two-day workshop, organized by QF and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in partnership with the ACD – a pan-Asian forum that aims to strengthen the continent’s international competitiveness – and the World Innovation Summit for Education, a QF initiative, focused on improving educational access and quality, promoting global citizenship, and building competitive workforces through collaboration at regional and continental level.
