Dear All,

Our colleague, Nurgül Keskin, will deliver the second sitting of “Artistic Ways of Learning Vocabulary” session, which was earlier announced for December 8 on our blog, in two weeks’ time on December 15.


2. Common Time Student Development Sessions

a. Last Week’s Student Development Session

Last Wednesday Sultan Zeydan gave a seminar on “Effective Problem Solving Skills” in English, which 133 students attended. The session presented the “Six Thinking Hats” method by Edward de Bono as an effective way of approaching and solving problems. The participants then had a chance to apply the method to different situations put forward for them and reflect on their own approaches to problems.

b. This Week’s Student Development Session

The session titled “Language Learning Online”, which was announced for December 8 on our relevant calendar, has been postponed to the Spring Semester. The exact date will be announced once the new semester starts.

That was the last of the student development sessions planned for this semester. Please note that all the session recordings are available on LMS under Extra-curricular Activities page, to which all the prep students have access. These session recording links are also available on Z Drive for your reference under:
