OUR eDIDACTIC LEARNING CONCEPT IS BUILT ON FIVE PILLARS
The first pillar is teamwork and collaboration, where students work in teams on various programme activities, learning the collaborative skills crucial to success in the real world.
The second is problem-based learning, which feeds into students’ natural instincts to investigate problems together, and to take a creative approach to identifying solutions.
The third is peer-to-peer feedback, where students are encouraged to share constructive feedback with each other throughout draft processes and leading up to submissions.
The fourth is tutoring and mentoring. From application to graduation, our tightly knit group of tutors and mentors provide personalized support to students and student teams.
The fifth is expert input. Experts and thought-leaders in their fields give inspiring and educational keynote addresses, sharing valuable insight and experience to students.
Within the framework of the online programme, individual members of the community are matched together into teams to engage in the programme collectively.
Online teamwork allows participants to build and develop strong networks where ideas and assumptions are shared in the process of moving towards a common goal. Each team is represented within the programme with their own unique identities, and have their own shared workspaces. This fosters collaboration and feedback exchanges between team members at all levels. All of this is complemented by rich forum discussions, ensuring that feedback exchanges take place amongst and between teams, contributing to the strong sense of community synonymous with the EDU student experience.
At the core of the programme is a peer-to-peer feedback process which engages and motivates each member of the community to exchange experiences, knowledge, and ideas with their peers.
