Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 29th, 2022:  Canadian University Dubai’s (CUD) Learning Resource Centre provided a platform for CUD’s community to participate in a series of fun and educational activities over one week.  The week’s activities, events and awards were well-attended by students.  Dr. John Newark, Executive Vice-President of CUD opened the event with a welcome address.  

Organized by Ms. Raihanat Ahmad and the Learning Resource Centre team, the week of activities were initiated for students to discover the endless possibilities of educational material and engaging activities provided by the library and learning centre, at the newly extended CUD campus at City Walk. “One of the pathways to quench a thirst for knowledge is through reading, discovering and connecting with the Learning Resource Centre.”  Ms. Menchie Armillo, CUD Library Director

Over the course of the five-day event, students took part in a range of library trivia competitions, culminating in a closing awards ceremony.  The awards ceremony honoured students in each category of activity, namely, book reviews, board games, blackout poetry, and a book face competition. 

Furthermore, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in a collaboration between CUD’s Learning Resource Centre and Amity University Dubai.  The MoU is a significant collaboration, where two universities come together to share learning resources and broaden the horizon of opportunities provided to students.”  Dr. John Newark, Executive Vice-President, CUD
