The UAE's successive breakthroughs in development since its establishment by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may God rest his soul in peace) are a result of the country's continuous effort to enhance its education sector. Due to the global impact of rapid technological developments, the UAE understands the imperative need to advance and modernize education, to prepare its citizens for the demands of the future labor market.

The Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) is committed to supporting the vision and strategies of our wise leadership so that they may be realized on the ground. As education plays a vital role in achieving the UAE’s current goals of sustainable development, the ECSSR organized the 9th Annual Education Conference, ‘Advanced Education in a Changing World: The Education Strategy of the United Arab Emirates’.

This book documents the proceedings of the Conference. Chapter one discusses the topic of leadership and innovative education, demonstrating some of its models and future trends. Chapter two looks at how the human brain functions, and ways that optimal educational opportunities can be provided to meet future requirements locally and internationally. Chapter three explores methods to prevent bullying through mentoring and counselling sessions, and provides an in-depth analysis of some measures that have been developed and adopted in this regard. Chapter four examines the Australian model of education with a focus on recent developments in the Australian educational context, efforts to establish professional standards for teachers, and teaching professional assessment instruments to measure graduating teachers’ attainment of standards. The chapter also highlights the Australian examination system, and its impact on the teaching profession. The chapter concludes with a discussion of some of the consequences of the above in the context of the educational experience in the United Arab Emirates. Chapter five sheds light on the German education system, with a particular focus on its outcomes and achievements, as well as the challenges facing it. The chapter also explores a number of implications for continuous development and strategic planning for the future, in order to design, develop and implement an innovative educational system.
