CPIT's partnership with Yanbu Industrial College (YIC) in Saudi Arabia is off to a good start. John Delany from CPIT is at YIC where he is conducting professional development initiatives.

The YIC Campus Times reported that: "The Education Development Centre (EDC) has shifted into action with its Faculty Development Program. This consists of four consecutive courses aimed at developing the repertoire of teaching skills of YIC faculty members in ways that will improve their students' learning and has established the EDC, which will develop YIC's education development capability." See more on page 7 & 14 of the PDF.

Also in the publication is a feature on page 12 about Dr Khaled Al-Zharani, Head of School of Mechanical Engineering at YIC, who is part of the EDC team. Khaled will visit CPIT in July. See more on page 12.

The impact of CPIT's Teaching and Learning Methods course is discussed on page 14 and - for the first time in Campus Times – a Women's Campus page is included, on page 15.
