The E-Learning Committee, in collaboration with the Staff Professional Development Committee at the English Language Centre organized an online 'peer learning workshop' on 2nd of June 2021, in which ELC staff shared ideas for interactive teaching activities and online tools used in their classes. ELC lecturers Mr Given Chakalisa and Mr Shaijan Joseph demonstrated the use of Mentimeter and quizizz.com as creative and engaging tools for learning and assessing students' outcomes.  Mr Hussein Al Balushi discussed the efficacy of using the 'MyELT' online platform for foundation courses, in conjunction with Pathways textbooks. Ms Razwana Khawaja demonstrated a novel idea of using Audio Feedback to interact with students to provide updates and specific feedback on homework tasks and interview practice.  Mr Karim Hanefioui talked about his new initiative 'Beyond University walls' in which he explained that online teaching had brought about some advantages for teachers and students, to get creative and expand beyond the realms of traditional classroom teaching practices.  The initiative opened opportunities to bring in 'virtual guests' to promote students active learning and communication skills. Ms Maryam Al Aufi also presented on 'Virtual Whiteboard for Collaboration and Interaction' ELC lecturers tested out the tool and exchanged ideas on how to use the virtual whiteboard within their own class context.  The workshop sessions were attended by the ELC staff and the dean Dr Ahmed Al Mamari who commended the staff on their efforts.  The ELC HoC, Mr Saif Al Weshahi, thanked the presenters and applauded Ms Amal Al Jahwari and Mr Abdallah Al Balushi- the E-learning Coordinator for planning and moderating a great event.
