The Office of Academic Affairs which is supervised by the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs is responsible for all academic activities in the college. As such, it is the function of this unit to monitor the performance of teaching staff, specify the needs of teaching and technical support staff, as well as the requirements for various academic activities—includingequipment, study halls, and other educational resources; and work towards their development. Moreover, the Academic Affairs Office supervises the implementation of quality assurance measures in teaching and learning and the publication of scientific magazines and periodicals.

The office ensures that the college mission and goals are accomplished. It believes in academic excellence, community service, and the core values of quality education. It strongly endorses diversity in academic and employment policies and practices. It offers excellent academic and cultural programs and fosters an environment conducive to learning. Furthermore, the office ensures student and faculty collaboration aimed at creating a learning community and by fostering faculty research and creative activity, which shouldadvance knowledge for all stakeholders.

Teaching and Learning

The aim of the NCT is to develop workers that can appreciate the practical, social, and ethical aspects of their chosen fields, with the skills and competence to do their jobs effectively in emerging culturally-diverse workplaces within the changing contexts of the Sultanate.

In order to realize this, NCT is constantly polishing an educational model anchored in the holistic concept of learning. It tries to combine the intellectual requirements of disciplinary knowledge and the outcomes of application-based tasks with personal skills, ideas, and approaches developed through actual practices in industries and the community.

The NCT supports and enhances teaching and learning through a flexible and dynamic approach which is expressed through stimulating teaching, the effective use of technology, and an information-rich environment.

Aside from the more traditional curriculum practices, many NCT students experience diverse complementary activities through theextra-curricular learning that exists in their community, workplace, and in other organizations.

The NCT shows its commitment to the betterment of quality teaching and learning through its recognition of good teaching practices, academic staff development activities, and other improvements obtained from feedback surveys and an annual performance review.



Our objectives and strategies for teaching and learning are included in the College Strategic Plan teaching and learning components. The strategic plan shows the directions for teaching and learning that the College is currently pursuing, as well as the student experiences that reflect our approach to the College's development.

The College's strategic approach to teaching and learning has reflected continuity in approach such as:

  • We have continued to put emphasis on application-based learning and the development of relevant skills to enable students to work in that particular environment.
  • Our technology platforms are now well-established, allowing us to adapt to new learning environments, and give our students a better learning experience.

Aside from the Library and the Learning Resources Centre, both students and staff can access the eLearning facility of the College to add/download course materials that are relevant to them. The Educational Technologies Centre (ETC) also provides Internet connectivity to all staff so that they can use the Web for the preparation of their teaching materials, and the Educational Services Section of the ETC provides varied services in helping the staff prepare these materials such as printing and publication.

NCT eLearn is part of the College's ETC portfolio. The NCT eLearn represents the College's commitment to enable new pedagogies and technologies in the teaching and learning goals of the staff through eLearning.

The ETC, with support from the Assistant Dean for Academic affairs, does this by providing course management and educational technologies support to academic departments and individual staff, as well as students, through various relevant activities and materials.

Vision


To support the College community so that it can enhance the students' learning experience with sustainable learning technologies that promote active and dynamic approaches to teaching and learning.

Principles


The eLearning initiative at the Nizwa College of Technology aims to assist the provision of quality student-learning experience through:

  • improving learning outcomes
  • adopting a student perspective on teaching and learning
  • using QA for the purpose of improvement
  • developing College-wide skills for use of e-learning technologies
Researches

Our goal is to provide the community with practical staff and student projects, as well as small-scale consultancy services, that address their immediate needs. In our own little way, we aim to make a difference to the economic and environmental well-being of the region where we operate through collaboration with various private and government institutions and the general community. Our success is shown by the diversity of our projects, the knowledge gained by our students, and the benefits to the community and our stakeholders.

We hope you can join us in contributing to the betterment of our locality through projects and innovative research.

Degree Audit

A degree audit provides the student and advisor with an analysis of degree requirements for a particular specialization. The degree audit matches a student's transfer and in-progress courses against the requirements for a program. It is a tool to assist the student and advisor in monitoring the student's progress towards a degree. The degree audit is an internal document for advising purposes and is NOT an official document of a student's academic record.
