Effective online learning for a new age
The cornerstone of INTI’s world-class learning methodology is the Blackboard Learning Management System that is integrated into many programmes taught at INTI. With Blackboard, learning does not only happen in the classroom, it happens everywhere.
Blackboard isn’t just about reading course notes. It’s a holistic, integrated system to collaborate and interact with fellow students and lecturers. Students can offer and gain feedback from their peers on coursework and perform self-assessments while learning in a safe, nurturing and holistic environment that encourages creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.
Classes become active forums to interact and grow as students share knowledge and collaborate with their peers. This personalised, interactive approach to learning results in well-rounded, highly motivated individuals who gain critical thinking skills and the motivation to give them an extra edge in the global workforce.
Students enrolled at INTI gain a bird’s eye view and are able to develop a road map for their academic progress through INTI’s revolutionary Blackboard system which allows course supervisors to monitor every aspect of a student’s performance from their attendance to the quality of their coursework and much more.
Course supervisors are also able to actively monitor, advise and pinpoint areas for improvement and offer consistent feedback to ensure students can address the weaknesses in their academic performance. This directly impacts student success and ensures better student outcomes.
Today’s work environment is more fast paced than ever before, demanding a host of 21st century skills that young professionals must demonstrate in order to excel and succeed.
Recognising the importance of addressing the needs of both students and the industry, INTI has remained at the forefront in ensuring the employability and job-readiness of its graduates. Each and every course taught at INTI integrates industry-relevant curriculum that is constantly evaluated for relevance.
As part of that goal, INTI lecturers undergo Faculty Industry Attachment (FIA) programmes where they are seconded to top industry partners for several months. Lecturers go through an orientation and on-boarding process including real-world scenarios in order to gain an in-depth understanding of what a new graduate hire will experience and what are the current demands of the job market.
INTI has established Industry Advisory Boards (IAB) that call upon active and influential professionals as well as recognised leaders in each industry ranging from Business, Engineering, Hospitality, Art and Design, and Information Technology to advise the academic boards on curriculum design and course delivery. This ensures that students will acquire the knowledge and soft skills that can be immediately applied from the first day of work.
Real world employer projects
INTI maintains close ties with the world’s leading companies to enable students to gain invaluable work experience before graduation.
To date, INTI has collaborated with over 450 top-tier employers across a host of industries such as Microsoft, General Electric and Mercedes-Benz, and is constantly expanding its list of collaborative partners to ensure industry relevance.
As part of their programme syllabus, INTI students are divided into teams with complementary skill sets and assigned to projects that critically test their knowledge and allow them to develop and apply their soft skills to actual business scenarios. These projects allow students to experience first-hand challenges faced by businesses while learning to apply industry best practices in actual conditions faced in the real world. Upon graduation, an INTI student will have a decisive edge with a storehouse of practical experiences and worldwide employability.
