The problem with today’s education is that most educators are still teaching the way they were taught in the past. Hence, there is a need to revisit the traditional conception of teaching and explore new ways to redesign learning so that it is relevant to the growing challenges of preparing our students to function in tomorrow’s world. This course is designed to facilitate pariticipants to redefine their conceptions of teaching and redesign their students’ learning experiences so that they meet the needs of the 21st century education.
RTRL is equivalent to a 5 credit hours course offered as a self-paced mode over a period of 24 weeks. There are 12 modules, hence we recommend that you spend about 2 weeks for each module. Since the course will be very much ‘hearts-on‘ and ‘minds-on‘ (Modules 1-6) as well as ‘hands-on‘ (Modules 7-12), course participants are expected to complete various activities set for each module.
At the moment, the course is offered in a self-paced mode. Hence, although the contents are structured for easy internalization, participants can explore them according to their preferred learning pathways.
