Professor Sadiq Alhayek teaches at the University of Jordan where he is also the Vice Dean of Faculty of Physical Education. He completed his PhD at Ohio University in 2001 after attending OPIE from 1997-1998.
According to Dr. Alhayek, OPIE prepared him greatly for his professional future. He appreciates the “consistent emphasis on becoming a strong English speaker” that is prevalent in the program. Also, OPIE was a fun and challenging environment that helped him learn how to improve his language autonomously.
