We want to congratulate our AIU graduate Dr. Siva Mahendran for his most recent achievement. Dr. Siva’s article- “Learning English through Active Participation (LEAP)”- has been accepted for publication in the International Journal for English Literature and Social Sciences (IJELS) in their February 2019 issue. You can find an abstract of his article below:
The teaching of English and workplace literacy skills can be dry and often very uneventful for the learners and it takes a resourceful- reflective and proactive trainer / teacher to align lessons to match the competency levels of the learners- their aspirations and also their keenness to learn. Traditional and even blended learning have seen run of the mill teaching and learning strategies till now and there is a need to fill the gaps left behind by these approaches to further ignite the passion in learners- to learn with a fire to assimilate and enrich themselves even more in their learning journey. This is not to say we need to replace the present teaching / training styles but to infuse more meat into the learning process to make it much more a fun activity than a tedious ‘get-it-over-with’ experience for all in the language learning environment wherever it may be.
