The Center for Learning Innovations and Customized Knowledge Solutions is pleased to announce the dates and theme for the 5th edition of the MENA Higher Education Leadership Forum (MENA–HELF); which will take place from the 23rd to the 24th of March, 2022 in the vibrant city of Dubai under the theme “Re-inventing Higher Education Post COVID-19: Towards a Responsive Higher Education Eco-system”. This coming Forum will be delivered in a hybrid format merging the benefits of both an in-person and online event.
Since its inception in 2013, the MENA–HELF has grown to position itself as one of the region’s premium dynamic networks addressing specifically Higher Education leaders and decision makers from across the globe. Through its various editions, which attracted participants from over 45 countries; it aims at addressing emerging regional and global issues and trends in the field and promoting innovative thinking to address them.
It aspires at becoming a regional ‘think tank’ for shaping higher education in the region and beyond and sparking reforms and innovation in the sector. In addition, the Forum promotes the exchange and sharing of good practices amongst Higher Education Institutions.
The 2022 Forum is expected to bring together more than 400 decision makers and education leaders (both face-to-face and online) from around the globe to provide ‘forward-looking’ thought leadership about the future of Higher Education post COVID-19 and its implications on the global education systems. As the sector continues to plan for the new normal, the forum will provide a platform for education leaders to seriously come together and think strategically about the lessons learnt from the crisis and the opportunities presented to positively transform the sector and reshape the educational ecosystem into an adaptable, flexible and relevant environment.
The forum will include a range of activities including pre-forum workshops and webinars, keynote addresses, panel discussions and debates and case studies’ presentations.
We are currently inviting colleagues from across the globe to share and discuss how their institutions have been responding to the pandemic both in the short and longer term through the submission of institutional case studies (visit www.menahelf.com for more information) , with a view of getting a consensus on how the sector will re-invent itself.
The Forum will also provide a vehicle for the establishments of cross-regional partnerships and collaborations focusing on the future.
We also are inviting organizations and providers serving the sector to consider supporting the Forum through one of the customized sponsorship packages available or through taking place in the parallel exhibition that will be organized during the two days of the Forum.
