The HCT-Al Ain Men’s (AAM) Foundations program hosted a professional development session on July 5, for faculty members from across the system, relating to the new course materials “EmSAT Direct”.
The session brought together faculty from HCT-Al Ain Women’s, Al Ain Men’s and Dubai Men’s campuses, where they reviewed newly created materials for EmSAT.
Gary Pathare from Dubai Men’s,the presenter for the session, has spent the past few months creating new materials that seek to align the Foundations curriculum further with the new EmSAT examinations. The purpose of the session was to introduce teachers to the new materials and explain their role in motivating Foundations students.
Additionally, the participants had the chance to ask questions about the materials and share best practices about their use. Finally, Gary closed the session by showing a sample of his course planning based on the materials in an effort to simplify his colleagues course planning and help them to save time.
