Doha: – As part of its ongoing commitment to encourage lifelong learning and personal development among the wider community, Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) has opened registration for three community courses.
The courses, offered every year to advocate personal and professional enrichment, are conducted in collaboration with well-established experts, each highly informed and experienced in their respective areas.
Classes begin with Professional Skills (for women and Arabic speakers only), which runs from October 6-8. Participants will gain valuable insights into the power and effect of words through sessions covering effective communication, presentation delivery, and enhanced listening.
Better communication is also at the heart of Life Skills for Success, to be held from October 13-15. This course provides participants with the skills they need to become effective team members in the workplace and achieve their goals through communication.
Running from October 21-28, Master the Art of Public Speaking will give participants the confidence to speak to larger audiences. The course offers practical insights on how to develop core messages and ideas, as well as tips on using body language as a tool to communicate clearly and effectively.
Ms. Maryam Al-Mannai, Vice President of Student Affairs at HBKU, said: “HBKU was founded with human potential at its epicenter. Our community classes aim to empower individuals to thrive in their personal and professional lives, and our fall program of courses is no exception. Key to our success is the involvement of our subject matter experts as they offer their perspectives and add to an all-encompassing learning experience. We are pleased to offer these opportunities to interested learners across Qatar, and hope to be able to provide them with valuable experiences that support their chosen career paths.”
HBKU Student Affairs has a core mandate of ensuring an inclusive environment for students and members of the community at-large. It seeks to instill core values and strengthen the fabric of the community by promoting the principles of lifelong learning and embracing diversity.
