Dr. Hanan Hairab, Supervisor of the Arabic Curriculum at HCT-Dubai, said that based on HCT-Dubai mission, and HCT Dubai leadership and organizational culture, the Arabic institute "Abjad Hawwaz" is to follow HCT Dubai teaching system, which is using learning zones and centers, and to deliver Arabic teaching courses in a practical, attractive, and enjoyable way. "This allows HCT-Dubai to remain at the cutting edge of Arabic language education, and to integrate more with other courses, programs and centers in the college and in the community," she added.
"With the inauguration of this institute, we aim for HCT-Dubai to be equally proficient in teaching Arabic as it is in teaching English, and to act as a change agent in revolutionizing the Arabic teaching methodologies," she pointed-out.
HE Sheikh Nahyan also inaugurated the HCT - Dubai Bazaar, which is an entrepreneurial event organized to provide a meaningful learning experience to all HCT - Dubai students who showcased their entrepreneurial talents to the community and raised funds for charity.
This year, students were responsible for all aspects of 50 businesses set-up including purchase, production, pricing, promotion and customer service, which translates to students practicing skills in finance, marketing, and managing employees and customers. Other HCT-Dubai Departments ran non-profit businesses to benefit the local community. For example, Health Sciences students offered free health checks and organized blood drives to benefit Dubai hospitals, and Education students ran special learning activities for young children who come as visitors with their parents.
The HCT - Dubai Bazaar, held at the Women's Campus annually, is one of the highlights of the academic year and a great example of student entrepreneurship in action.
Over the course of three days, students are involved in running a business of their choice at the College campus. The main objective is to make profit, as well as apply learning from the classroom.
During the Bazaar, students compete for awards in entrepreneurship and innovation.
