We rely on the specialty of our members, modern research, and also the local culture and history when preparing the material for teachers and principals of educational centers.

No Boundaries And No Limits
Here at Doran International we hold various courses in the form of workshops. What you experience here is the application of tens of theories and views. The course leader acts as the guide allowing teachers to take control over their own learning. Prior to each course, the contents and teaching programs are updated based on new research and information. We believe that the only way to apply the correct teaching principals is to take control and take part in the group. Having a role in one's own learning enhances the feeling of belonging to a larger teaching community and the discovery of personal skills, which is enhanced when attending Doran International courses.
