    |   Rokiah Mahmud    |

    THE Centre for Lifelong Learning (C3L) at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will hold an open day at KB Sentral Shopping Centre today from 10am-6pm.

    The open day aims to provide a platform for applicants to join lifelong learning programmes for the August 2019 intake.

    The programmes aim is to develop professional skills and improve job prospects.

    The wide range of flexible short courses include Project Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship 1, Programming Fundamentals 1, Mobile and Web Applications Development, Malay Islamic Monarchy, Entrepreneurship and New Digital Ventures, Introduction to Accounting, Cost Accounting, Business and Management in Digital Economy, Consumer Behaviour, Fundamentals of Business Information Systems, Contemporary Human Resource Manage-ment, Applied Business Research, Digital Business, Principle of Photography and Photojournalism, Intellectual Property (IP) Rights and Patent Innovation, Graphic Design and Visual Communication.

    The lifelong learning programmes utilise the blended learning approach. ‘Blended Learning’ follows a mix of traditional face-to-face delivery as well as the use of rich online educational resources – video lectures, online discussions and assignments.

    This approach allows students to study at their own pace, anytime and anywhere. Credits from these short courses can be accumulated, leading towards a Diploma or a Bachelor degree programme.

    The short courses are available on first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of 20 students per class.

    BSc in Digital Economy is offered to those wishing to pursue their studies in multidisciplinary areas across four different disciplines, including Business and Management, Entrepreneurship, Digital Technology, and Financial Literacy.

    The degree programmes similarly follow the blended learning approach and enable students to study on a part-time basis for up to 10 years.

    Similarly, the Blended Learning is adopted by BSc in Digital Economy based on a negotiated learning programme structure in which students are allowed to follow GenNext degree programme rules and regulations with Discovery Year.

    UBD’s flagship GenNext Curriculum includes the Discovery Year in which students are given opportunities to choose from one of four options overseas or locally to enhance and broaden their horizons.

    Meanwhile, PhD in Lifelong Learning is provided for those who wish to undertake a research degree in applied interdisciplinary study relevant to the workplace and development of Brunei Darussalam.

    The programme is aimed in facilitating students to acquire applied specialist knowledge and research skills through original research resulting in a worthy publication of doctoral level, establish a lifelong learning research culture and contribute to new applied interdisciplinary knowledge. A range of specialisations can be chosen: Lifelong learning & Innovation, Islam and Learning, Inclusive Learning Policy & Practice, Transitions from Learning to Working, the Academic Workplace, and Adult Education.
