Implementation and Evaluation of a New Learning Project in United Arab Emirates University
Alsuwaidi, Khalifa Ali; Sharma, Anil
International Journal of Educational Reform, v12 n3 p178-207 Sum 2003
Arabic, English, mathematics, and information technology (IT) are used in every aspect of modern Islamic society throughout the Arab world. As a result of the increased awareness of the importance of these subjects and their impact on society, they have rapidly become established as part of the curriculum in most modern Arabic universities' undergraduate programs. However, the mere availability of modern Arabic, English, mathematics, and IT courses in universities does not necessarily guarantee that, ultimately, students will become more literate. Using a case study approach, this article describes the development plan, implementation, and evaluation of a new learning project that was introduced at United Arab Emirates University (UAEU), and which could be used in any Arab university. Further, with modifications, it could also be incorporated into the high school curriculum as well. (Contains 1 figure and 7 tables.)
