  • IHC Faculty members are US Citizens holders of Doctorate Degree in Philosophy from US Universities. Dr. Katherine Green , Dr. Mark Leon , Dr. Hamid Elhag and Dr. Hans Mattingly arrived to Dubai the first week of January 2013. In startup mode, our faculty are all carrying administrative responsibilities.
  • IHC Admin members are a combination of US, Algerian, Pakistani, Indian, Saudi and Kenyan nationals. Senior team members are Ms. Suzanne Ryne , Mr. Oussama Benrekia , Mr. Gagan Lilwani and Mr. Arsalan Yunus .
  • Sustainability in education is not simply about reducing paper use or turning water faucets off but rather about integrating key issues into teaching and learning. IHC will be empowering students to think critically, change behaviors and take action in areas of sustainability by promoting competencies in collaborative decision making and communication, critical thinking skills, and project-based learning. IHC students will be challenged through ideas, projects, international collaborations, innovative teaching methods, and technology that they CAN change the world whether it be climate changes disaster risk reduction, poverty reduction, sustainable consumption, or biodiversity.
  • IHC students are equipped with laptops, tablets, and software that allow them to connect, share, collaborate, and learn from anywhere they are located. All course textbooks are ebooks and provided to students on their tablet. All course material (syllabi/handouts etc.) is maintained within the BlackBoard site attached to each course. This allows students to access information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students can work together on a project or with the faculty member and upload and edit material on Google software either synchronously or asynchronously. They may be in the same classroom on campus, in their homes, or even from a coffee shop at the mall! And this is not limited to IHC students but will include students from MSJC and future articulation colleges. International study groups will be the norm for IHC.
  • Through the use of short pre-recorded video “mini-lectures,” accessed through Blackboard and watched before class, IHC enables greater collaboration between students and faculty by turning over more in-class time for group work and discussion. Dr. Leon and Dr. Mattingly co-producing videos for their courses Benefits of Flipping include: Gives faculty more time to spend 1:1 helping students Builds stronger student/faculty relationships Creates time for valid, real-world and project-based learning Produces the ability for students to “rewind” lessons and master topics Allows for multiple learning styles to be accommodated and promotes differentiated instruction Creates a collaborative learning environment in the classroom Faculty become the “guide on the side” rather than the “sage on the stage.” Many teachers and faculty have used videos similar to that of the Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/ Flipping the Class is an innovative method being adopted around the world: http://www.knewton.com/flipped-classroom/ Extending the Classroom: The world is becoming increasingly “flat” and students in the 21st Century can not be content with learning information and ideas purely from one country or even one continent. It is imperative that students understand how to learn and communicate with people from multiple cultures and to be able to exhibit tolerance and acceptance of differences. By having hybrid courses and lectures involving faculty and students in different countries connect via the Polycom system, we set the stage for IHC students to be farther ahead than many traditional college students in the US or indeed globally. Our students will travel to the US already comfortable working with international peers and faculty.

  • The students are all happy and comfortable with the digital textbooks.
