 Zayed University and Explorance successfully hosted the fifth Bluenotes Conference at Raffles Dubai recently, amongst more than 130 participants representing 50 institutions from 12 countries around the world.

Panellists at the event included prestigious international speakers from the UAE, across the GCC, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
The 5th annual Bluenotes conference was titled “Insight to Action: Driving Student Success” provided academics with a valuable opportunity to share experiences, best practices, and insights in order to enhance the student learning experience.

Professor Michael Allen, Zayed University’s Acting Provost and Chief Academic Officer, said, “The UAE leadership has outlined a new vision for the future; and education has a central role in the delivery of this vision. The Government’s 2071 Centennial Plan and Projects of the 50 are an ambitious series of developmental and economic projects aimed at delivering the UAE's development over its second 50 years. As a federal institution, Zayed University has, since its foundation, played an important role in educating the future generation.”

Samer Jaffar, Explorance GM in the MENA region, noted, “Explorance partners with universities to provide a feedback ecosystem which empowers a cycle of continuous improvement to enhance the student experience and ensure that graduates are better equipped to contribute faster in the economy. We are proud of the close partnership with Zayed University as we jointly welcomed the largest number of participants to the 5th edition of this conference. Bluenotes has become a reference event for quality assurance in the MENA region.”

Over two days faculty from Zayed University participated alongside leading faculty from Tufts University, the University of London, the American University in Cairo, Khalifa University and King Abdulaziz University, in addition to senior representatives from the UAE Ministry of Education.
