Zayed University in Abu Dhabi
Zayed University successfully organised a Professional Development week on both its campuses in Abu Dhabi and Dubai during the week of December 15, 2013.
Throughout the week, a number of workshops were conducted by
faculty and staff based on the following themes: Research, Classroom Based Research (Action Research), Mobile Learning, Classroom Practice, Language, Assessment, Critical Thinking, and Technology Training.
The Professional Development week included a mix of sessions, some based purely on research, others more on classroom practices and others more on technology.
The Professional Development week witnessed a wide participation from faculty in all Zayed University colleges and departments, as well as staff from many parts of the university.
It was an excellent opportunity for members of the ZU community to share their experiences, learn more about the work that their colleagues are engaged in, discuss their research interests, and share classroom strategies that can help the university achieve the most important goal of all -increased student learning and engagement.
