Are you Interested in Presenting at The Teaching & Learning Conference?


Presenting at the Teaching and Learning Conference MEA is a chance for you to share your expertise among your peers and be acknowledged as a thought leader in the industry. Whether you’re an experienced speaker or brand new to presenting, we encourage you to participate and share the challenges from the past or present opportunities for the future. We want to hear from you!

This year, we are looking for presentations that fit within 5 of these core challenges: 

Enhancing the teaching and learning journey 

Learners’ expectations are ever-evolving as the world and learning opportunities continue to rapidly change. Find out how leading instructors and administrators across the region are approaching teaching and learning at their institutions. 

Optimizing the learner experience

By optimizing people and process, institutions can better identify students at risk, increase enrollment, improve retention, and enhance the overall educational journey. During these TLC sessions, learn how organizations are easing the student’s responsibilities outside of the classroom through process re-engineering, integrated technology systems, and nurturing faculty and staff interactions.  

Preparing for change 

Upgrading institution systems, adopting new technologies, or moving to the cloud can be a daunting task as you think about change management for educators and students. Hear best practices and tips from other institutions about how they approached these initiatives and improved the teaching and learning experience for their faculty, students, and staff.  

Using analytics to drive learner success 

You make institutional choices every day that may change the course of a learner’s life. Now, find out how to make data-informed decisions to close achievement gaps and improve student learning outcomes. Learn how institutions are leveraging data to drive learner success. 

Fostering inclusive education 

Emerging technologies continue to change how we support all learners regardless of learning style. Explore methods for ensuring you are building an inclusive learning environment, and that pedagogy, content, technology, and services are accessible for everyone.

We hope to bring together pedagogically great ideas behind teaching and learning technologies where the Middle Eastern, African and Turkish communities can learn from the ways other institutions have implemented their strategies.
