Moayyad Al-Nasra

Abstract


The main purpose of this study is to present a contemporary educational model that addresses the students concerns and coops with the new technological changes in the society. The model incorporates two types of courses, technical courses and non-technical courses. New approach called Active Learning Techniques (ALT) will also be presented. These techniques put the students in the center of the teaching and learning process, where students can assume calculated risk based on their performance in the class. Students can be rewarded by their classmates for excellent academic performance in a challenging and exciting way under well defined and unanimously approved rules at the beginning of the semester. This ALT is proved to be very effective for the weak and below average students. Results of class study will be presented.
