TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACH

At MGSEB, we believed in Student Centered Learning (SCL) as compared to the traditional learning approach i.e. Teacher Centered Learning. This approach focuses on the needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles of the students.The lecturer will act as a facilitator to the learning process. Indeed, SCL creates interesting and vibrant discussion among students, strengthens student motivation, encourages mutual respect, promotes peer communication, builds student-lecturer relationships and exchange of ideas, promotes active @ discovery learning, and students take responsibility for self-learning. In this context, students will take charge in exploring the knowledge, researching relevant information for the subject matter of interests, and develop their soft skills to effectively present communicate their findings. We use multiple-dimensional approaches in applying SCL such as Problem Based Learning, Case Study, Entrepreneurship Strategy Simulation, Industry Lecture Series and many others.
