The 2nd International Conference Foundation Programs: Innovation and Technology ‘Shaping the Future of ELT’ aimed to create an international platform for the practitioners of the Foundation and English Language Teaching program to explore new ideas and acquire innovation approaches regarding the integration of technologies in the forms of plenary sessions, paper presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and poster presentations. The outcome of the conference benefited the participants in facilitating them to leverage on the use of technology in higher education. The conference was also another manifestation of UOB’s ongoing effort to be the key player in the field of education in the GCC. The QS 2019 ranking of the University as the leading institution in the Kingdom of Bahrain, top 25 in the Arab region, and top 2% of the employer reputation globally are testaments of UOB’s effort in striving for excellence.
