Kosovo Educators Visit IDF Bilkent Primary School


A group of 30 educators from Kosovo visited the İhsan Doğramacı Foundation Bilkent Primary School between March 23 and 27.

Throughout the week, the secondary and elementary school teachers and principals from Mamuşa, Kosovo observed  classes, attended seminars and visited main attractions such as the Anatolian Civilizations Museum and Anıtkabir. They were also invited by Prof. Dr. İhsan Doğramacı to his residence for five o'clock tea where they discussed Turkish medium education in Kosovo. As well, they had the opportunity to meet with local managers in education  to explore topics such as the current challenges in their education systems and the desire to set up a strong bridge between the two countries to improve quality of education.

As a host school, the İhsan Doğramacı Foundation Bilkent Primary School  introduced the visiting educators to the Turkish training system, culture, and the warm hospitality of the people.
