TLC: Pilot programmes prepared!
Teaching and Learning Committee
Middlesex University Dubai
The Teaching and Learning Committee has spent the year preparing and piloting a number of products and services to support student learning and faculty professional development across Middlesex University Dubai. Enhancing educational quality was the main focus of each project, with an emphasis on either faculty or students. The first project was a part-time observation form to support part-time faculty in improving pedagogical practice and better supporting student outcomes. The second project focused on the use of a human relations tool to better support students and faculty in their ability to understand themselves and others, and to work together. The third project centred on the development of a survey tool to better understand the barriers to achievement in post graduate studies to create a training programme to support incoming postgraduate students. The final project has a focus on digital tools to support faculty in teaching students general academic skills across all disciplines through the use of podcasts, Camtasia and Articulate.
