Teaching and Learning Strategies
Throughout the course, we will follow a similar pattern of instructions in every class. Each unit will be broken down into a number of topics, each of which will be taught weekly. Generally, students will start with the lecture of the topic taught by our dedicated and experienced tutor in which they will explore the concept and theory of the topic. Our tutor will also demonstrate relevant examples of the topic for students to visualize the application of the concept and theory. Then students will apply what they have learned in the class practice, which includes various exercises, case studies, and problem solving questions. Sufficient homework will be assigned. A quiz will be given to measure the progress in the next class.
All assignments will be submitted electronically. The completed student works will be marked. Students will be encouraged to check and correct the mistakes.
Students will be encouraged to ask questions and share their comments. Students will get instant feedback from the tutor. Constant feedback will be given to student in order to build their skills and effective work habits in working independently, organization, time management.
