Participation of outstanding students in creating tutorial lessons

The participation of outstanding students in creating tutorial lessons for their poor performing colleagues is good idea towards solving their problems in subject matters and motivating them towards hard work and enhancing their class performance. It is obvious that the course instructors focus on the development and diversification of learning methods to raise the performance of students. In this context, the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering initiated this experiment and the student Mohammed Bassam Hammoud, under the supervision of Dr. Bassem Al-Alwan, offered special lessons for the students in the course of Chemical Engineering 1 in partnership with the Deanship of Student Affairs. It started from 24/02/2019 to 31/03/2019. The lectures were delivered every Sunday from 17:00 to 19:00. The lecture focused on important and useful lessons for students that will strengthen them for their next stages. The students were impressed with the lessons and the attendance exceeded 30 students. The Department of Chemical Engineering experienced this successful experience and determined to replicate the same in coming next semester.
