The educational basis for the delivery strategies utilised in our programs is based on ‘Active Learning’ approaches.
Active learning involves engaging students in course material through carefully constructed activities designed to reinforce learning. Active learning commonly involves simulations, introspection, role playing, etc. Strategies promoting active learning can be defined as instructional activities involving students in doing things and thinking about what they are doing.
In cooperative learning, students work on problems and projects under conditions that assure independence and individual accountability. We aim for a combination of short-term mastery, long-term retention, and depth of understanding of course material, acquisition of problem-solving skills, formation of positive attitudes toward technology, and level of confidence in knowledge or skills.
