NATO Mission Iraq instructors share teaching expertise in Baghdad

BAGHDAD - Professional Military Education (PME) instructors with NATO Mission Iraq (NMI) completed a series of lessons on the ‘Structure of an EDIP’ at the Education Cadre Development Centre in Baghdad on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021.

Major Samantha Warner and Staff Sergeant Michael Qasim led the Iraqi senior leaders through a series of classes based on the teaching theory of EDIP – Explain Demonstrate Imitate Practice. The lessons concluded with a practical lesson where the class learned to use the EDIP concepts in order to construct a Double Fisherman’s Knot, a most effective hands-on method to emphasise the teaching of practical tasks.
