  • General education at Effat University: A value-based liberal arts teaching model

    Khalid, Mohammad; Department Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; General Education; 0; Itani, Khadija (Association of American Colleges & Universities, 2019)
    At the core of this teaching model lies a fully dedicated program consciously called the General Education Program (GEP). The technical and social feasibility of GEP, as well as its inherent regard for diversity, are evident in its gradual but persistent transformation from merely a set of core and preparatory courses to the largest study program of its kind in the entire KSA. GEP not only represents an effective value-based teaching model of international repute but also affords many possibilities for future customizations, thanks to its intrinsically adaptable course offerings, teaching methods, and assessment mechanisms. Over the last few decades, the KSA has undergone a wide array of social developments, during which the Kingdom’s education system has significantly evolved. It has not only incorporated but also improvised on elements of Western educational philosophies, with liberal arts education (LAE) at the forefront. The dynamics between the modern Western education and the Islamic heritage of the Saudi society has given rise to ethico-Islamic models of teaching and learning, one of which is espoused in this paper. The impetus for this transformation is also strongly connected to women’s role in education, patronized by the late Queen Effat Al-Thunayyan. The late Queen established the KSA’s first women-only higher education institution in 1999, Effat College of Jeddah, which received a Royal decree to become a university in 2007.

  • Higher education institutions in the post-Covid era: transformation through crisis and outstanding issues

    The Covid-19 pandemic certainly was a cause of new challenges, but it has also exacerbated the already- existing weaknesses inherent in the ecosystem of higher education. The scope of institutional adaptation thus required was immense and remains both under-recognized and under-explored in the academic debate. The pace and depth of the transformation have not been even; institutional, political, legal, economic, and cultural factors were at play. No one-size-fits-all strategic approach to Covid-19 and its implications was possible. As law and regulatory efforts follow developments in society, several gaps and loopholes were left unattended in the early stage of the pandemic, thus frequently forcing HEIs to improvise. Notwithstanding the substantial and measurable degree of digital and institutional transformation HEIs attained, the pandemic left the fabric of the community of HEIs ruptured. Against this backdrop, this chapter outlines the key challenges and the takeaways, and makes a call for action.
  • Higher education institutions and the global digital transformation: beyond the question of which skills for the 21st century

    Visvizi, Anna; Kozłowski, Krzysztof; Nawaz, Raheel; External Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Entrepreneurship; 0; Visvizi, Anna (Routledge, 2023-09-22)
    The objective of this chapter is to collect the key takeaways of the chapters included in this book and to employ these takeaways in a discussion on HEIs (including the challenges they face and the responses to these that they generate) in times of the global digital transformation. What are the key challenges HEIs face? How to address these challenges? Which business models to implement? How to prepare students for successful careers? How to use the talent and intellectual capital pertaining to HEIs to allow HEIs to enlighten the society?
