By the end of the 3-day training, they both are able to clearly understand roles of the deans in local and international higher education context, the conflict management that the deans face and how to address those issues effectively. They have also developed their personal action plan (PAP) to improve their own faculty. It was really a great training. Participants have built a professional network for their future collaborations with local and international institutions.
