The U.S. Department of State announced the selection of Dr. Joshua M. Paiz of The George Washington University for a two-month English Language Specialist project focusing on artificial intelligence and its applications in teaching and learning in Bahrain at Bahrain Teacher’s College. Dr. Paiz is part of a select group, as his project is one of over 250 that the English Language Specialist Program supports each year. 

The English Language Specialist Program is the premier opportunity for leaders in the field of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) to enact meaningful and sustainable changes in the way that English is taught abroad. Through projects developed by U.S. Embassies in more than 80 countries, English Language Specialists work directly with local teacher trainers, educational leaders, and ministry of education officials to exchange knowledge, build capacity, and establish partnerships benefiting participants, institutions, and communities in the United States and overseas.
