About the Conference
Higher education is characterized by prominent historical features and shared global objectives all over the world. However, the goals of academic institutions vary across different regions and even sometimes within the same region. They also differ based on historical period. Nonetheless, there exists a unified framework for universities objectives, which can be identified in terms of three fundamental missions: education, scientific research, and community service. In the third millennium, to ensure the success of higher education institutions in achieving quality, effectiveness, and excellence in fulfilling their functions under normal circumstances and during crises, universities should be able to adapt to recent developments and keep pace with new transformations in today’s world of digitalization and globalization. This is especially crucial with the increase in global risks and pandemics. This can be achieved through enhancing intellectual and technological awareness, localizing knowledge, embracing new applications and technological programs, and using modern methods in education, research, and various university services..
The convening of the 1st E-Learning Conference in November 2020 had a prominent role in directing the attention of State leaders and the public and private sectors institutions towards the importance of e-learning and providing the required capabilities, starting with policies and legislation, passing through infrastructure, and coming to establishing a culture of optimal investment of technology in the learning process.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in Yemen seeks to gradually integrate digital transformation in higher education by utilizing available resources. The Ministry established Yemen Center for Information Technology in Higher Education (YCIT-HE) in 2007, tasked with proposing general policies for information systems and technology in the higher education sector. It also suggests plans and programs that contribute to building information services for libraries, e-learning, and more across all higher education institutions. However, with the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic, which affected most countries, the educational process in Yemeni universities was suspended. Therefore, the leadership of Higher Education Ministry considered the challenging circumstances and realized the urgent need to incorporate technology in administration, teaching, and scientific research both at the level of the Ministry and universities. The Ministry leadership has also recognized the role of technology in enhancing higher education and facilitating academic accreditation. This situation calls for an urgent action for developing visions and ideas, mobilizing resources, conducting studies and research, updating policies and strategic plans, developing academic programs and courses, as well as employing technology across various educational and administrative aspects
The Yemen Center for Information Technology in Higher Education (YCIT-HE), under the supervision of His Excellency Mr. Hussein Hazeb, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research has actively organized a series of conferences, in collaboration with the Emirates International University and the University of Science and Technology, with a view to harnessing technology across various educational facets. The latest of these conferences was the 3rd Scientific Conference held in 2022, titled Technological Knowledge and Digital Transformation in Higher Education.
