More than 200 new intake students were welcomed by the English Language Center (ELC) through its In-house Induction Program on 31st of January 2019. The said program was coordinated by Mr. Randy Magdaluyo (Level 1 & Student Induction Committee Coordinator) and presented by Induction Committee members: Ms. Samha Al Mas’hali and Ms. Amal Al-Awadi (Level Representatives), Mr. Khalid Al-Ghafri (Student Grievances Coordinator), Mr. Rajesh Menon (GFP-Math Coordinator) and Mr. T. Karthikeyan (GFP- IT Coordinator).
The program started with a discussion of the SCT motto, vision, mission and values by Ms. Amal Al-Awadi. She explained clearly all details about the college statements and its graduate attributes. Translated handouts were also distributed to students.
The English skills, curricula, e-learning resources and assessment plan were presented thoroughly by Ms. Samha Al Mas’hali. A short speech in Arabic by an excellent level 4 student, Fatima Haidar Rasheed Al Zain, also helped students understand all these language learning requirements and resources as she shared her own experiences studying English.
Mr. Khalid Al-Ghafri also discussed completely the important rules in classroom activities, examinations, absences, warnings and academic behaviors in the campus. It was followed by the last session on the basic placement test, assessment plan, attendance policies and common rules for Math and IT by Mr. T. Karthikeyan and Mr. Rajesh Menon. All sessions were delivered through a Power Point presentation.
The activity culminated with students giving feedback on the college vision-mission-values statement and general rules, and student induction program.
