The lecture was presented by Dr. Nimir Elbashir, Professor of Chemical Engineering & Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University and Director of Gas & Fuels Research Center in Qatar. In his lecture Professor Elbashir lecture demonstrated that the quality in university education is measured by the academic institution commitment to excellence in teaching, knowledge transfer, research, and global outlook. He emphasized that he teaching excellence depends primarily on the ability of the universities to facilitate ideal learning environment and to develop effective tools to measure their professors’ role in promoting excellent teaching methods and styles.
Professor Elbashir promised to present two further presentations that will highlight the path to achieving excellence in teaching research and service in academic institutions that will hopefully result in enhancing the ranking of the Sudanese universities.
Quality in university education is measured by the academic institution commitment to excellence in teaching, knowledge transfer, research, and global outlook. The teaching excellence depends primarily on the ability of the university to facilitate ideal learning environment and to develop effective tools to measure their professors’ role in promoting excellent teaching methods/styles, provide the needed mentorship for their students, and measure their preparedness and performance in real life jobs. On the other hand, research excellence is measured by the reputation of the academic institution regarding scientific papers, patents, research income in dollars as well as the number of graduate students (Ph.D. and master) and their impact. Creating globally recognized university require building robust research structure and developing strategy of research dissemination (journal papers and books publications, participation in global conferences, etc.) This presentation will highlight the experience of regional universities in this path. A series of two presentations will highlight the path to achieving excellence in teaching research and service in academic institutions that will result in enhancing the ranking of the Sudanese universities.
