AbstractThis study is concerned with the redesign of the class meeting pattern at Qatar University. It examines the existing meeting pattern based on its operational efficiency, its alignment with the strategic plan of the University, and its perception by the students and the faculty members. The analysis reveals serious limitations and shows the need for a new pattern with a full non-teaching day and no one-hour lectures. A capacity analysis proves the feasibility of such a pattern. Taking into consideration the specifications of the Qatari society, it was judged that the non-teaching day be split in two-half days. The present research recognizes the distinction between scheduling and class meeting patterns and aims to address the under-researched theme of having the meeting pattern as a variable rather than just an input to scheduling.
