Mr. Ahmad Faizuddin attended OPIE in Summer 2009 before beginning a Master of Education (M.Ed) in Education Administration at the Patton College of Education at Ohio University. He is currently completing a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Educational Management and Leadership at the College of Education at International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in Malaysia and is a Graduate Research Assistant at Kulliyyah of Education and Facilitator at Centre for Credited Leadership and Soft Skills, IIUM.
Mr. Faizuddin, who is from Indonesia, greatly “enjoyed socializing with international students [including ones from Turkey and Japan] and lecturers” in OPIE. One of his first lecturers was the owner of a local business who introduced him to American culture in Athens.
OPIE prepared Mr. Faizuddin for his academic work at an American university. He says that “OPIE helped me realized my potential in writing. It is really beneficial for my current academic life and jobs especially in academic writing.” He also notes that OPIE works hard to “integrate technology into the teaching and learning process.”
