Implications for practice-based learning for Omani students’ skill development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper aims to reflect on and discuss the implications of practice-based acquisition of written communication and critical thinking skills with the foundation program students at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Oman. Pedagogy implemented to enrich students’ learning experiences and encourage them to exert more effort into learning is explored in relation to teaching, curricular practice, students’ profile and contexts of learning. The discussion of the community-based projects implemented with the foundation program students indicate the importance of designing and implementing practice-based teaching and learning activities that will shape the educational development of Omani students as individuals and skilled professionals.
