Building academic, professional and leadership capacity.
This two-day workshop covers all aspects surrounding the topic of governance in Higher Education. Typically participants come from a range of institutions and countries, with differing contexts, and the activities are based around governance issues affecting an imaginary university college - in a variety of simulation exercises. Within a single institution, this workshop centres on the specific organisational structures and governance styles established.
The most recent workshop took place at the Novotel in Downtown Dubai between the 12th and 13th May 2014 and was part of the workshop program offered by CLICKS, the Center for Learning Innovations and Customized Knowledge Solutions.
