EE Faculty Sharing on Online Teaching

While the Pandemic COVID-19 is developing so rapidly and affecting different aspects of daily life, thanks to the extensive efforts of our EE faculty and staff, online teaching and learning have been adopted effectively across different class activities.

In order to maximize student learning through this new mode of class delivery, EE organized two ZOOM sharing sessions held on 5 February and 27 March where faculty actively shared their best practices on online teaching for lectures, labs, projects, presentations, and tests. To prepare faculty for the upcoming examinations held in May, apart from all best practices shared at the briefing, it also served as a good opportunity to collect different suggestions from faculty in formulating the departmental guidelines on online tests/examinations.

Our faculty’s resilience in the face of adversity is indeed admirable. We all adapt differently and we will all adapt together.
