Partnering with Aga Khan University for a Canadian-certified Workshop
The University of Central Asia's (UCA) Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology collaborated with Aga Khan University to conduct a Canadian certified, Instructional Skills Workshop for the academic staff from across UCA's three schools. Held at UCA Naryn Campus, the workshop, using an intensive experiential learning approach, aimed to improve instructors' skills in learning-centered teaching and provided practical tools to further enhance their teaching effectiveness. The Workshop equipped participants with information on teaching adult learners, selecting and writing useful learning objectives and lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation, and suggestions for evaluating the learning process. The workshop also emphasised reflection and examination of teaching practices, with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on specific content. This workshop was another example of increasing collaboration between UCA and Aga Khan University.
