About Us

Our Vision

As the UAE’s first ever Centre for Research in Digital Education, our vision is to be Dubai’s main hub for academics to engage in meaningful discussions about Digital Education, and to collaborate on conducting world-class level research within this domain. Through this research, we hope to develop a unique and distinctive portfolio of projects, which can support local educational leaders with making informed decisions about the integration of technology in their schools/universities, based upon empirical evidence.


Our Mission Statement

The CRDE conducts impactful interdisciplinary research about Digital Education in the context of Dubai, the UAE, and MENA, by collaborating with both local and global academic entities.


Our Strategy

Through a detailed needs analysis process, the CRDE identifies problems with Digital Education in the MENA region, then our team of academics works towards solving them using a research-based approach.
