Congratulations to Usman Ali Lecturer Department of Education who has been Awarded the Prestigious Charles Wallace Fellowship

Friday, May 24, 2019

Usman Ali, Lecturer, Department of Education, School of Social Sciences and Humanities, UMT has been awarded the prestigious Charles Wallace Fellowship for an academic visit to the University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom. These fellowships, offered by The Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust in collaboration with the British Council, aim to enable mid-career academics to widen their professional knowledge, skills and international linkages.

Mr.Usman is currently visiting the School of Education and Sociology, University of Portsmouth. Apart from professional familiarization and networking, he is working on the contrastive study on the role of educational leadership in madrassa education in Pakistan and the United Kingdom.  During his trip to the UK, he would investigate how madrassa education has adapted practice away from its primary concern by specifically focusing on the development of character and knowledge of its students through the moral example of the teacher; instead, the secondary concern about institutionalizing the transmission of knowledge is now to the fore in terms of Research Learning Communities.

Usman Ali also met Prof. Mathew Weait (Dean, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences), Dr. Bryony Whitmarsh (Associate Dean of Global Engagement), Dr. Catherine Meehan (Head of School of Sociology and Education) and Dr. Naheem Jabbar (Senior Lecturer of Sociology)  at University of Portsmouth, UK to discuss potential areas of partnership between University of Portsmouth, UK and University of Management and Technology, Pakistan. In these meetings we discussed the possibilities and potential areas of partnership between the universities regarding student exchange program, student and teacher training program and joint research projects funded by other donor agency.
