Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This study was conducted to analyse the faculty perceptions of the development workshops conducted at Sultan Qaboos University, the only public university in the Sultanate of Oman. Following a needs assessment, a proposed plan for professional development workshops was developed, with the resultant workshops being delivered in 2001. Findings show that most participants positively perceive the components of the workshops, which reflect to some extent, the participants’ satisfaction. Qualitative analysis of data shows that the participants see some strengths, weaknesses, and improvements in these workshops. The study summarises the conclusions, implications and recommendations.
