Center for Teaching and Learning launches new webinar series for Education City studentsPublished Jun 24, 2020
The Center for Teaching and Learning is launching Ithraa’, an interactive webinar series comprising weekly sessions that are open to students across Education City. “Ithraa’,” meaning “enrich” in Arabic, reflects CTL’s commitment to developing essential leadership and technical skills in our students beyond the core engineering curriculum. This year’s Ithraa’ webinars are centered on essential leadership and managerial skills — such as networking, conflict management, design tips and more — and will be facilitated by international professional development experts. EC students can come together virtually with these experts to share their diverse experiences, learn and reflect through these sessions.
