Amman- 7 March 2022

The Deanship of Innovation, Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurship (DI-TECH) at the German Jordanian University (GJU) organized a workshop to develop the module descriptions for Dual Studies practical courses.

This is an important step as GJU is preparing to rollout new Dual Studies tracks to include most of its undergraduate programs.

The workshop which was attended by lecturers from various academic departments aimed to provide a platform where all lecturers participating in Dual Studies can contribute to design practical learning outcomes emphasizing soft skills, technical communication, leadership, and professional development.

Building on the strong success of the program during its initial implementation phase and the expansion of our network of industrial partners, GJU is updating the regulations of Dual Studies to provide credit for students and officially recognize the time they spend in companies and organizations.

The workshop also comes as a follow-up on a previous workshop organized by GJU President Prof. Ala’aldeen Al-Halhouli at the end of last year to make sure that the design of Dual Studies plans and their implementation meet both the aspirations of students and the needs of industry.

Dr. Nidal Alshwawreh, the Dean of DI-TECH, opened the workshop by expressing his gratitude for lecturers for participating in the workshop and their willingness to work together as a group to update and design this innovative and unique educational model.

The workshop was moderated by our DI-TECH Dual Study Advisor Ms. Simone Strasburger who will continue to coordinate efforts by all academic programs and instructors to make sure our Dual Studies at GJU will continue as a successful, sustainable, and attractive program for students and industrial partners.
