About the workshop:

This workshop aims to refresh frontline teachers’ knowledge and understanding about Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) students and to empower their techniques in dealing with NCS students in various classroom situations. Through his personal teaching experiences, Dr. Ullah will address some of the common myths/misunderstanding towards the NCS students. Several classroom scenarios will be discussed, and a pragmatic approach will be suggested for the said scenarios. This coming workshop could be a knowledge exchange platform to illustrate how effective learning and teaching can be achieved while dealing with the NCS students.

On completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Suggest ways to create and deliver an effective learning and teaching environment for NCS students.
