Everybody is a Genius.
But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,
it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid
A traditional learning method generally involves a teacher delivering the course to passive students who are then assessed on their capability to memorize and repeat the content of that course. Great academics can result from this learning environment but do those graduates have what an employer is looking for?
Critical Thinking and Problem Solving skills are the key factors for a successful applicant. That is why in 2015 Techtorium decided to set up an Innovative Learning Environment (ILE) with an emphasis on understanding concepts, linking curriculum with realistic case studies and developing collaborative learning which values an individual’s skills and personality.
The overall delivery of our computer courses reflects what is actually happening within the New Zealand IT industry. Technology is forever changing. What was a key requirement 2 years ago can almost be considered obsolete in 2 day’s time. With an industry so dynamic and open to change, flexibility is paramount. With innovative learning, students are driven to inquire and think at a higher level than has previously been asked of computer graduates. Students are now required to present their own thoughts and think outside the box. Our computer courses have been described as revolutionary, authentic and highly vocational which supports the notion that our graduates can apply real-life skills to the roles they take on.
Overall, this innovative-learning / open-learning / modern-learning / transparent-learning environment means that Techtorium computer courses are delivered in a style that currently is not matched by any other institute in New Zealand.
ILE MEANS TECHTORIUM GRADUATES ARE ABLE TO THINK CRITICALLY ABOUT CONCEPTS AND PROVIDE USEFUL, OUTSIDE OF THE BOX SOLUTIONS TO THE IT INDUSTRY OF TOMORROW.
