NUGSE MSc students met with Askhat Zhumabekov, a nominee for the Global Teacher Prize in 2021

NUGSE MSc students met with Askhat Zhumabekov, a nominee for the Global Teacher Prize in 2021, as part of the elective course "Teacher Development and Identity" by Professor Duishon Shamatov. The Global Teacher Prize is a kind of Nobel Prize for teachers. Askhat Zhumabekov, physics teacher at Semey NIS, a talented teacher who constantly reflects on his teaching practice, a committed, creative person and a terrific personality, shared his experience with the MSc students. Askhat described in detail about his experience of participating in the Global Teacher Prize and discussed with the students the criteria for selection. He also shared about the work done to support novice teachers at his school. The meeting was especially valuable because the MSc Educational Leadership students of secondary education learned firsthand about leadership aspects at a school, were able to ask their questions, and most importantly, learned about what a good school leader should do to make his or her school a better place for students.
