I am pleased to announce that Dr. Senthil Nathan and I are participating in the 6th QS-MAPLE Conference on May 10-12 at United Arab Emirates University in Al Ain. We will be presenting on the topic, “Implementing co-curricular outcomes as a win-win proposition”.
The mission of QS-MAPLE is to provide a forum that promotes the development of higher education in the Middle East and North Africa in the global context that stimulates international partnership, and to support the processes of institutional evaluation and upgrading that will lead to greater worldwide recognition of Middle Eastern and North African universities.
The QS-MAPLE conference in Doha in 2015 drew over 300 participants including university leaders, higher education experts, and educators from over 20 countries to advance discussions on the internationalization of higher education in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The 5 tracks for this year’s event are:
Track 1 : Measuring student success in higher education
Track 2 : Designing, defining and assessing the co-curriculum
Track 3 : Innovative Student Learning Projects and Strategies
Track 4 : Integrating Research with Student Learning
Track 5 : Developing and Managing international Strategy
I encourage my higher education colleagues to register for QS-MAPLE Conference in Al Ain. It will be an outstanding event and a great opportunity to network. Senthil and I hope to see you in Al Ain.
