Ibri College of Technology has commenced a Series of Workshops in SCL on May 4, 2017 at the Multipurpose Hall. The aim of these workshops is to give more practical ideas on delivering lessons using the Student-Centered Learning approach.
Duhai Alshekaili, a lecturer at the IT Department, was the first presenter for this 8-parts series. He demonstrated his proposed SCL model entitled “SCL Toolkit for Applied Courses” which can be adopted by many courses taught not only in the IT department, but also in Business and Engineering departments as well as for some ELC courses.
Duhai’s presentation was composed of two parts. The first part was a demonstration of the toolkit and the assessment which used to measure the course’s SCL-compliance.
The IT Department envisioned the implementation of Student-Centered Learning (SCL) in a more systematic manner. The Department Council constituted a pilot team to make the students and all teaching staff as well, understand the SCL concept. The pilot team was composed of Dr. E. Anupriya, Dr. Duhai Al Shukaili, Mr. Shaik Mastan Vali and Ms. Roselle Solitario. The team, through the Program Review Committee, came up with four models of implementing the SCL, based on four class of courses like: Application, Programming, Skill and Knowledge. The team developed various models based on the above class of courses like CASE Study Model, Prototype Driven Model, Master Mind Model and Skills Model.
