Short Session Description (one line):
The session discusses how the Papua New Guinea University of Technology (Unitech), the only technological university in the Pacific (except Australia and New Zealand) fills the gap to cope a global demand for a quality education of university engineering students a consequence from quality educators mentoring them. The role of the Office of the Higher Education (OHS) and (Institute of Engineers in Papua New Guinea (IEPNG) and other stakeholders play significantly to bridge the gap between the global demand for quality education. This order is instituting a policy to submit for accreditation, the Washington Accord, now completed a year one of a five-year accreditation program. In line with the upgrading a system, syllabus and curricular offerings of the engineering departments of the University were reviewed. The analysis includes technology literacy of teachers and appropriate pedagogy. In the advent of technology advances the use of Learning Management Systems (LMS), Flipped Classroom, and other web and cloud tools advocacy become dominant. It has resulted in the birth of an Enhanced Learning and Teaching Diploma for Teachers consisting of three (3) courses: Learning Management System (LMS) & Flipped Classroom, Teaching 101, and Project Based Teaching. It also resulted in a new postgraduate programmes: Master in Engineering (Civil Engineering), and Master of Science in Solid Waste and Resource Management.
This proposal needs to tie to our global mission. Our event is not focused purely on technology.
Hi Mirzi -
There still needs to be more clear ties to our mission. Using the words "global demand" does not ensure that there is a global aspect to this proposal. Where in your proposal is there an aspect that present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems?
