GOMBAK, 18 September 2021: The Deanery of Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (KIRKHS) has introduced several measures to lessen the pandemic’s negative consequences on students’ teaching and learning processes for the upcoming Semester 1, 2021/2022 which include the adjustment of teaching approaches and learning styles.

As practised in the previous semesters, the Kulliyyah has decided to continue adopting the Remote Teaching and Learning (RTL) mode for teaching and learning due to the limitation of spaces for classes that could facilitate the Kulliyyah to adhere to the requirements of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

According to a memorandum, the RTL adopted by the Kulliyyah entails both asynchronous and synchronous online teaching and learning.

For online asynchronous session, the online teaching will be in the form of lectures and assessments. This involves lecturers conducting a flipped-classroom approach and the students to actively communicating with their classmates and lecturers on online platforms.

As for the synchronous session, instructors are to be conducting scheduled synchronous online classes with the students at least once a week. This is to enable interactive sessions and consultations between students and their lecturers.

The supervision of postgraduate students undertaking research projects may also be conducted through online medium.

The memorandum also stated that there will be centralised and decentralised online end-of-semester examination and assessment where details of the assessments will be provided later by the course instructors.

Meanwhile, students who are interested to return to the campus are reminded to strictly abide to COVID-19 SOPs. Further details on the process of returning to campus can be referred to IIUM Official Guideline for campus Re-opening 01/2021 issued by the university.***
