The College of Education (CED) at Qatar University (QU) in collaboration with AlFaisal Without Borders Foundation (Alf), organized a ceremony to announce the winners of the Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Award for Educational Research. The ceremony took place in the presence of President of QU Dr Hassan Al-Derham, Alf founder and chairman HE Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al-Thani, Dean of College of Education Dr Ahmed Al Emadi and a large number of faculty and interested persons.

For the fifth consecutive year, CED and Alf award academic researchers, postgraduate students, teachers and education leaders who have demonstrated excellence in scientific research, with the aim of promoting research, increasing knowledge, enhancing educational practices and developing education policies.

Dr Hassan Al-Derham spoke at the event saying, “There may be a unanimous understanding of the importance of scientific research but educational research also holds particular importance as a foundation for societies. Therefore, it is natural that education research becomes a priority for countries in the developing world and can be used as a measure of the quality of education in the state.”

He adds, “The State of Qatar has officially demonstrated its support for scientific research through the presence of many organizations, institutions and funds supporting scientific research and the provision of prizes for distinguished Arab scholars. The Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Award for Educational Research, is important in providing an important platform to promote a culture of educational research in the Arab world, offering Arab researchers the opportunity of joint research work, exchange of experiences or publicizing the efforts of researchers and publishing their research outputs. The award also provides an opportunity for educators and educational leaders to publicize their most important practices as well as the opportunity for university students to participate as a research generation.”

Dr Ahmed Al Emadi also spoke at the event saying, “I am delighted to meet today to honor distinguished Arab researchers, who are a model of the importance of scientific research in general and educational research, especially in a world that has become aware of the importance of the knowledge-based economy.”

He adds, “Today’s event provides us with participants in individual and joint research from Gulf states and other countries such as Lebanon, Sudan, Palestine, Jordan and Morocco. This shows the reputation of the award and the growing interest in participating in it. The award requires that research be published in journals with a solid academic reputation and we are more careful now that the published magazines have a distinctive impact.”

Abdul Latif Al Yafei, Director General of Al Faisal Without Borders Foundation said, “This award emphasizes the important role played by the private sector in supporting the educational process, and the importance of scientific research in creating a generation capable of thinking of innovative solutions to the challenges facing us. Last year, more than 140 scholars from all countries of the Arab World participated in this award, while more than 400 scholars participated with us this year, demonstrating the importance of the award for many researchers in the Arab world.”

At the end of the ceremony, the winners were announced. In the category of academics two from QU won first place: Director of National Center for Educational Development, Dr Abdullah Abu-Tineh and Professor of Education Management, Prof. Hissa Sadiq. Second place was awarded to Kashef N Zayed and Petra Jansen of Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat.
