TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGY
As this programme is specially designed for working adults , the teaching – learning and assessment strategies
are based on the principles of “androgogy” an approach that is highly suited to working adults. This
approach requires students to be involved in the learning process, draw from past work experiences to share
their views, deal with real life work issues and problems, collaborate with classmates in developing effective solutions and apply whatever they have learnt into their lives and work environments. The
programme is designed to be engaging and impactful to enable learners to gain the knowledge, practical skills , and abilities for personal growth and development.
The module will be assessed through continuous assessments and final assessment in order to gauge student’s
achievement of learning outcomes and to determine the final grade of the module. The details are as
