CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION | OVERVIEW
Center for Continuing Education
The Center for Continuing Education is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year! We began with one course for school teachers in October 1993 -- the beginning of the In-service Teacher Training Program. The Adult Education Program started in 1996 with a variety of evening classes in business, computers, and general interest topics.
Learning throughout one’s life is of great importance in the rapidly changing world of the 21st century. The CCE at Haigazian University gives adults the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills through two programs:
- Adult Education Program
- In-service Teacher Training Program.
N.B. Center for Continuing Education courses, training sessions, programs, and workshops are separate from the regular bachelor's and master's degree programs of Haigazian University.
Vision of the CCE
The Center for Continuing Education, a division of Haigazian University, will serve the Middle East region by providing high-quality, relevant educational opportunities that enrich the personal and professional lives of adults.
The Center for Continuing Education is a division of Haigazian University. The CCE promotes on-going learning for adults by providing accessible educational opportunities. The guided learning experiences include programs, courses, workshops, and lectures, both academic and non-academic.
The Center for Continuing Education serves individual learners from youth to mature citizens who are from diverse backgrounds. It also serves a variety of organizations (private and public, for-profit and not-for-profit), especially schools. The CCE, in an interactive learning environment, provides opportunities for adults to update themselves or to learn new knowledge, skills, and attitudes so as to enhance their careers and/or develop personally and as members of society.
In-Service Teacher Training Program
I absolutely enjoyed my experience in the In-service Teacher Training Program in HU. Till now, I participated in 6 courses in the Teacher Training Certificate and in the Diploma for Coordinators and Division Heads. I had a great time learning from expert instructors through interaction and collaboration in a dynamic, creative process that involves the exchange of ideas, sharing of experiences, projects, discussions, and real case studies that helped me apply new skills to real profession and life situations. These courses greatly prepared me for what I would encounter in my profession.
My experience here has been everything I expected and more. This program has given me all the tools and skills I need to be not only an effective teacher, coordinator or supervisor, but also an educator. Mission successful!
