Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) has opened registration for three community courses “as part of its ongoing commitment to encourage lifelong learning and personal development among the wider community”. The courses are conducted in collaboration with well-established experts, each highly informed and experienced in their respective areas, HBKU has said in a statement.
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, the statement notes.
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 until October 28, the 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.
“Our community classes aim to empower individuals to thrive in their personal and professional lives, and our fall programme 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, ,” Maryam al-Mannai, vice-president of Student Affairs at HBKU, said.
