Middle East Education Thought Leadership Forum



The General Secretariat of the Association of Arab Universities is pleased to be cooperating with Gulf Conferences in London to deliver the Middle East Education Thought Leadership Forum, virtually, on 25, 26 and 27 October 2021.


The forum will enable opinion leaders in education, including ministers, presidents and directors of educational institutions in the Middle East, to consider and present their views on education now and in the future, in the region in particular, and the world in general.  The challenges created by the Covid pandemic and the creative initiatives and practices that your institutions have developed to overcome these challenges will inform the discussions. Examples will be shared on how to build on this experience and develop educational systems so that they acquire the strength and flexibility required to reach the highest levels of readiness to be globally competitive in the fields of education, learning and technology.


Main topics of the forum are the following:

·        Scientific research and comprehensive development goals.

·        Disseminating the use of modern technologies in higher education.

·        Internationalization of university education and the possibility of benefiting from it in the Arab world as an entry point for achieving global leadership for universities.

·        Improving the educational environment that stimulates creativity and innovation.

·        The role of higher education in achieving sustainable development goals.

·        Specializations and skills for future jobs and their suitability for development.

·        Digital transformation of the higher education sector in the time of Covid.

·        Education, quality assurance, and accreditation, and the extent to which this reflects on the economy and development in the development of Arab societies.


It therefore gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend this important Forum and participate in and enrich the constructive dialogue to advance education, particularly at this time of major challenges in the world and the Middle East and to help build a better future.
