We feel we know him quite well already after our skype calls, but face-to-face his good cheer and ability to get things smoothly organised were even clearer.With Nazmi and Justin’s contributions (Anna is away at a conference in Estonia) we have been able to organise the initial steps of the EAST Project.  In the evening, after a trip to Edinburgh, Nazmi was back at the University of Glasgow to give a talk on ‘Education in Gaza Through Siege & War:  Stories of Success & Researching Multilingually’ – it was a fascinating introduction to the very positive impact that learning opportunities can have, despite the siege (and the happiness of the deaf students, filmed on day 1 of the first-ever university course in Gaza, was wonderful to watch!)

  1. It was a pleasure to meet Dr Nazmi with today along with Bill. The meeting was very productive and has laid the groundwork for what promises to be a promising collaboration between international students in Glasgow and students in Gaza. I am very happy to be involved in this very positive learning project. The obvious enthusiasm for learning from all sides make this a fascinating project to be involved in.
