A key aspect of our methodology is that our courses incorporate 'connected learning'. The international character of our courses adds a crucial dimension to this.
1. Students are made familiar, not only with elements of their own culture, but with elements belonging to a wide variety of cultures.
2. The lecturers who design the courses and the tutors belong to different continents and come from diverse religious and social backgrounds.
3. The students are made to interact creatively with other students whose experience may be totally different from their own.
4. Sharing classroom space with students from other backgrounds happens in terrestrial colleges too. Our courses, both in content and interactive dynamics, aim at opening our students' minds to seeing the world through the eyes of others and learning how to discern values within a wider frame of interpretation.
Questions uppermost in our mind at all times:
