Zayed University - Outcomes-Based Academic Program Model (ZULOs)

Outcomes-Based Academic Program Model (ZULOs)

Zayed University has adopted an outcomes-based academic program model. The colloquy and undergraduate programs at Zayed University are consequently outcome-based and designed with reference to the Zayed University Learning Outcomes (ZULOs). These six outcomes were created by faculty members at Zayed University as a means of developing the necessary skills to prepare students for the world.

The Zayed University Learning Outcomes are found in the Zayed University Catalog.

The major programs are housed within one of the six academic colleges; each college's faculty members have created its major Learning Outcomes aligned with the Zayed University Learning Outcomes. Each student will have successfully fulfilled all 6 ZULOs upon graduating from the university.

Within each college, faculty have identified Major Learning Outcomes (MALOs) which are aligned with the Zayed University Learning Outcomes but are discipline specific.

Famous quotes containing the words model, academic and/or program:

    The playing adult steps sideward into another reality; the playing child advances forward to new stages of mastery....Child’s play is the infantile form of the human ability to deal with experience by creating model situations and to master reality by experiment and planning.
    Erik H. Erikson (20th century)

    Being in a family is like being in a play. Each birth order position is like a different part in a play, with distinct and separate characteristics for each part. Therefore, if one sibling has already filled a part, such as the good child, other siblings may feel they have to find other parts to play, such as rebellious child, academic child, athletic child, social child, and so on.
    Jane Nelson (20th century)

    In 1869 he started his work for temperance instigated by three drunken men who came to his home with a paper signed by a saloonkeeper and his patrons on which was written “For God’s sake organize a temperance society.”
