Participatory Engaging Teaching (PET)

We expectour graduates to be creative and progressively want them to be entrepreneurs, yet we do not give our students practice in these skills in all their years of education. The question is without practice, can our students learn creativity on their own?

The Participatory Engaging Teaching (PET) techniques, built around the Inductive Teaching methodologies, are designed to fill this gap. PET techniques make it easy for the students to engage and use their brains creatively.

The PET workshop at the summit is an opportunity for trainers to evaluate the effectiveness of the PET techniques through first-hand experiences and if wished to take back with them the PET training package developed by the Human Resources Development Institute (HRDI) of DIU. The PET training can be run independently by any licensed institution.

Certificate in Employability Skills (CES)

We expect our graduates to get jobs where the employers demand skills such as critical thinking, good interpersonal and personal skills, creativity and good communication skills. The question is do we give our students practice in these skills during their academic development? The Certificate in Employability Skills (CES) course, developed using the highly effective PET techniques, is designed to fulfill this need. While using their brains creatively, the students take ownership of developing skills much in demand by employers globally. This Scottish Qualifications Agency (SQA) accredited course turns around lifelong habitual rote learners in about 10 class sessions. The CES workshop at the summit is an opportunity for trainers to evaluate the effectiveness of the course through first-hand experiences and if wished to take back with them the CES training package developed by the Human Resources Development Institute (HRDI) of DIU. The 108 contact hours CES course can be run independently by any licensed organization with all the materials available in Moodle. Date: 23/03/17

I Can Express My Thoughts (ICEMT)

Employers require good fluency in Basic English Skills (BCS). However, it is found that many graduates struggle with English and are unable to pen a sentence with combined ideas. The tested methods of Grammar Translation (GTM) and Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) have yet to deliver the desired language skills.

The “I Can Express My Thoughts (ICEMT)” course is designed to develop fluency in basic expression of English. The ICEMT course, developed using the highly effective PET techniques, gets students to take ownership of language development and puts them on the road to mastery. The students develop confidence to start speaking in the just 3 classes.

The ICEMT workshop at the summit is an opportunity for trainers to evaluate the effectiveness of the English language course through first-hand experiences and if wished to take back with them the ICEMT training package developed by the Human Resources Development Institute (HRDI) of DIU. The 36 contact-hours course can be run independently by any licensed organization with all the materials available in Moodle.
