Teaching and Training Strategies

The course will adopt a range of learning and teaching strategies underpinned by the principle of student-centered learning.  All participants are required to be actively involved and fully engaged in all aspects of the learning and teaching process.  Engagement with fellow participants, both at individual and group levels is encouraged to ensure mutual support and learning from peers.  Various learning technologies will be used to facilitate learning and teaching beyond the traditional classroom setting.  These technologies should enable participants develop essential online skills as well as opportunities for collaborative and team work and access to global resources and expertise.

The specific learning and teaching methods deployed will vary according to the knowledge domain and context but would, in general, include some or all of the following:

  • Face-to-face Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Case studies
  • Multimedia Demonstration 
  • Class Discussions
  • Online distance learning and activities

Methods of Assessments

Assessment will be seamlessly integrated with the learning and teaching activities since assessment is an integral part of learning.  The assessment approach will be based on the twin objectives of (a) guiding participants to enhance their performance in the achievement of intended learning outcomes and (b) measuring the extent to which the learning outcomes have been achieved.  Assessment activities will thus comprise both formative and summative assessments characterized by detailed and timely feedback, self, peer and group evaluations, and internal and external moderation of summative assessment.  

Specific methods will depend on the knowledge domain being assessed but would, in general, include some or all of the following assessment methods:

  • Case study analysis
  • Assignments
  • Projects
  • Presentations
  • In class activities and quizzes 
  • In class exams
  • Online quizzes and activities
