The Workshop was very well-organized and the presenter was extremely knowledgeable not to mention her enthusiasm. I enjoyed the workshop very well. I am familiar with a lot of the materials presented (been involved with ABET accreditation), but I learned about additional assessment methods in addition to others. I would have liked however that more time was added to Q/A.

This is a comprehensive workshop that covered all the major technological tools that many enhance teaching and learning. Dr. Narimane is a very knowledgeable and charismatic presenter who succeeded in delivering detailed and complex information in a friendly and accessible manner. Thanks to her efforts in this workshop, I am no longer apprehensive about the use of educational tools like Blogs, wikis and discussion board. I am actually looking forward to trying them in my classes next year.

Material presented was very useful. It will help me manage the supervision of capstone students even better. I will be able to get students to do more writing at a steady pace. The one page proposal/plan wukk also be particularly helpful. For myself, I feel even more motivated to do some more writing in a consistent manner as I work on innovating in my area of interest. I really liked the 3C’s of academic writing.

This workshop helped us make changes throughout the Student Affairs careers. We are back with bundles of decisions to change and implement. We grasped the way to be leaders, educators and mentors; we will serve with a smile!
This was a very good program in a very relaxed manner with very active participation from the floor that made it very interactive. I would not hesitate to recommend this program to others in this enterprise of tertiary education. The facilitator was expert of his presentation.
Workshop touched upon key areas relating to student services; how to identify the requirements, challenges, how to overcome them, how to adopt best practices, contribute towards enhanced student experience. Mr. Mokhtar is a great facilitator who kept us engaged.
Dr. Bello Lawal DanbattaAssistant Professor, Professional Strategies Schools, INCEIF, Malaysia
On day one of the program I have very little knowledge about delivering lecture and instructing in an e-learning program but at the end of day three, I am really confident of instructing an e-learning program because of the knowledge I have gotten at the end of program. And it is useful for both online education and face-to-face.
Dr. Muhammed Yusuf SaleemAssociate Professor, INCEIF, Malaysia
The program overall was a very useful. It create awareness on the relevance and importance of educational technology for our online and face –to-face students.
The workshop is helpful as it identified best practices and new trends which can be applied to further improve policy review and compliance. I’m going back to my University with new ideas on how to improve on policy frame work and hopefully find ways on how to effectively administer compliance of Policies.
Excellent workshop facilitated by a world leading scholar and educationalist. I learnt a great deal from this workshop. I now have a much better understanding of governance issue many thanks to CLICKS colleagues for their leadership and hard work, especially Dr. Narimane and I enjoyed the workshop very much.
The workshop was excellent. I personally benefited a lot from the leader’s remarks and suggestions. I believe that we were able to implement the learning accumulated through the workshop in the on-going revision of our academic quality assurance systems.
I have been associated with Dr. Narimane Hadj-Hamou for over five years now and have found her insight to be cutting edge in the world of higher education. It is my belief that in order to achieve many of the innovations needed in MENA, thought leaders will need to think outside the box to create new kinds of learning organizations. CLICKS is well positioned to provide this leadership.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for this opportunity to participate in this workshop on Strategic Planning in Higher Education. It was overall well organized, and prepared. The topics covered were excellent and the most attractive part was the quality and the open ideas during the interactions.
I find all of CLICKS's workshops very useful. The Presenters are very knowledgeable and the workshop organization is professional. Thank you for being a support for Higher Education Institutions and showing us the correct way to do things.
