Be Engaged, students advised

Students should grab the opportunities offered at WOU to learn not only through the classes and lecturers but also from peers, through interactions on campus and the various extra-curricular activities available to them.

WOU Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Zoraini Wati Abas was speaking during the morning orientation session for the new on-campus learning (OCL) full-time students from the May 2018 intake, held at the main campus today.

She said WOU’s small classes will allow the students to forge a close-knit relationship and this will contribute to their success as students.  “Not only is the University fees affordable, students are getting good quality education at WOU.  Our team of academicians come from a broad background and with diverse experiences.  Students should be able to benefit through their teachings and interactions. Take the opportunity to learn from them and ask questions, not just on academic content but on life.”

She also spoke about WOU’s student engagement concept. “We give you opportunities to learn, be it formal through lectures and classroom assignments, or informal when you participate in extra-curricular activities. You will be able to pick up knowledge and living skills.”

MOTIVATING THE NEW STUDENTS TO BE ACTIVELY ENGAGED WITH THE UNIVERSITY.

Prof Zoraini continued, “Student engagement is when you are actively engaged. You come to class, you do your homework on time and submit assignments on time. Be engaged with the lecturers, the activities and in whatever you do, including going to the library, making friends. Be engaged with the University and the learning process.”

She encouraged the students to be the best student they can be, and reiterated, “Learn from the subject matter and from the experiences of your lecturers. They are here to help you.” She also advised them to try out kayaking and to participate in the events of the OCL student body to sharpen their soft skills.
