Tutors Training Programme for the Northern Region

WOU organised a tutor orientation and training programme to equip its newly-appointed tutors as they prepare to teach students for the July 2007 semester.

The day-long session at Disted-Stamford College was attended by part-time tutors recruited to support WOU students who have registered with the Penang and Ipoh Regional Offices for the forthcoming semester. A total of 65 tutors and 20 WOU staff participated in the training programme.

Tutors from the Southern Region are scheduled to attend a similar training programme at Menara PGRM on July 1st.
