QS-MAPLE: Must-attend Conference for Middle Eastern and African Educators
Every year, educators from all over the world, mainly from the Middle East and Africa, come together to share knowledge, expand their network and forge strategic partnerships at QS-MAPLE—a conference and exhibition that enables higher education institutions to stay ahead of the competition. Even if you are on limited budgets, this is one event you do not want to miss!
Having trouble convincing your supervisor for attending QS-MAPLE? Not to worry, we have the solution for you!
Share your experiences from previous events with your colleagues, e.g. your impressions, the information you gathered, the contacts you made and how you intend to benefit from all.
Explain to your employer how QS-MAPLE will be beneficial to your institution with these tips:
- Identify your institution’s goals and its challenges
- Look for programmes and sessions within QS-MAPLE, which relate to these goals and address the challenges
- Inform your employer about your current partners who will be attending the conference and those you need to discuss future programmes or services with
- Refer to the frequent updates on participating institutions for information on potential partners
After attending QS-MAPLE, let your supervisor know that it was the right thing to do. This will allow for a higher probability of a “yes” next year.
We hope this information has been helpful to you and we hope to see you at this year’s QS-MAPLE.
