Call for Papers and Presentations

The NBAQ invites extended abstracts of research, case studies, and presentations that address the conference’s sub-themes. While submitted abstracts may engage theoretical approaches to good practices, submissions should showcase implementation strategies and models, as well as empirical evaluation of the influences of implemented good practices.

The scope of good practices that the conference’s sub-themes encompass is broad: Good practices regarding student development, curriculum reconstruction, institutional administrative re-structuring, library and information system management, engaging faculty in quality assurance processes, among other areas of institutional performance. The conference’s sub-themes, moreover, encompass the issue of developing further the national qualifications framework.

  • provide a 200-300 word description of the study’s (or the presentation’s, or report’s) content and aims;

  • Provide the participant’s name, title, organization, brief bio, phone number(s), and email address.

Submissions are accepted in Arabic or English. The abstracts are subject to a review process.

The NBAQ especially seeks submissions from experts in the area of higher education improvement and national qualifications frameworks implementations.
