General Education Conference 2023


The Higher Colleges of Technology’s (HCT) General Education Division (GED) and the HCT-Dubai Women’s campus are pleased to host the second HCT International General Education Conference on October 13 , 2023.

The theme of this year’s conference is Teaching and Learning Practices to Sustain Effective Development in Education. We invite teachers and researchers, both locally and internationally from across different academic disciplines within the field of General Education, to share their research and classroom activities that support effective educational practices.

The conference is free-of-charge for both presenters and attendees and will be a mix of in-person and online attendance. We encourage as many people as possible to attend in person to allow more positive collaboration and for you to enjoy what Dubai has to offer.  Those traveling from outside of the UAE will have to make their own accommodation arrangements, however we can assist you in getting the best possible hotel rates. Please check the website regularly for more information about hotel accommodation options.
