IVLP Impact Award Project: Empowering Educators: Implementing AI-Enhanced Inquiry-Based Approaches in English Language Education in Bangladesh

The project will integrate AI technologies and inquiry-based teaching methods to transform English language education in Bangladesh. The project will equip educators with innovative strategies to foster student engagement and elevate learning outcomes in classrooms across Bangladesh. Mohib hopes  to turn every classroom into a dynamic hub of curiosity, exploration, and innovation, where students are not just passive recipients of knowledge, but active participants in their own learning journey. 

The project includes a six-month series of training workshops to acquaint educators with AI technologies for English language learning; curriculum development to integrate AI into interactive lesson plans; and the formation of professional learning communities for peer support and best practice sharing. The effectiveness of these strategies will be evaluated and assessed, and findings will be disseminated to promote the wider use of AI in educational settings. 

“My goal is to cultivate a community of educators equipped with the skills, confidence, and resources to harness the potential of technology and inquiry-based methodologies, ultimately shaping a brighter future for generations of English language learners in Bangladesh.” - Dr. Md. Mohib Ullah 

IVLP Exchange Experience 

Mohib participated in the IVLP Project Integrating Technology and Inquiry-Based Learning Methods in the Classroom, organized by the U.S. Department of State and Institute of International Education, in partnership with Columbia Council for Internationals, Global Austin, International Focus, Presidential Precinct and World Trade Institute. 

Mohib’s exchange experience led to the development of his project: “My IVLP experience provided me with invaluable knowledge and connections that will directly inform and enhance the implementation of my IVLP Impact Award project…Specifically, my interactions and engagements with individuals, organizations, and educational institutions during the IVLP exchange shaped my understanding of innovative pedagogical practices, emerging technologies, and collaborative approaches to education.”  

“I am reminded of the words of one of our distinguished [IVLP] speakers, who emphasized the profound impact of leveraging technology to foster inquiry-driven learning environments. This wisdom continues to resonate with me as I strive to empower educators in Bangladesh with the tools, strategies, and inspiration needed to revolutionize English language education in their classrooms." - Dr. Md.
