Bridging The Gap

Meet Abdulaziz and Abdulla from Qatar. They are Qatari Nationals that are students of mine in the Technician Preparatory Program offered by the College Of The North Atlantic-Qatar. They are sponsored by energy companies operating in the region. They are learning the fundamentals of Gas plant operations to prepare them to go work in the industry for their respective companies.

As an instructor from Western Canada, I experienced many ‘Gaps’ in culture, language, learning styles and student/teacher expectations. At first I found it very challenging but though being very open minded and the willingness to understand more about their culture made things a lot easier. I will continue to work with my students to bride the gaps and empower them forward to become great performers 🙂
