Group discussion Group discussion will be motivated as much as possible when relevant issues occur.
Problem-based learning Questions that require high level thinking will be prompted when relevant.
Cooperative learning Cooperative learning will depend on the number of students enrolled in this class. If there are more than 6 students in the class, then presentations of chapter and/or papers will be assigned to the designated groups. The preparations of the presentations will automatically require them to carry out cooperative learning.
Media, audio, visual materials If the supplementary materials can be obtained from the internet and other media, they will be used for instruction. In addition, if COVID persists, then on-line instruction (multimedia integrated into instruction) will be necessary.
