From July 24-28, 2017, BUILD-IT and Oracle Academy jointly organized a five-day intensive train-the-trainer course in Java Foundations for BUIILD-IT academic partners. The training was led by Oracle Academy instructor Jian Li and drew 21 professors from six institutes and introduced faculty to project-based learning techniques in teaching foundational Java courses.
During the training, practical examples from industry were presented to guide faculty on how they could enrich students’ learning through similar pedagogy. At the end of the workshop, numerous faculty expressed their appreciation for the hands-on, in-depth training curriculum. Ultimately, the training sessions gave faculty the ability to enable students to create and work with projects which challenge them to learn the concepts of Java programming, to design object-oriented applications with Java, and finally, to create Java programs using hands-on, engaging activities.
Additional Oracle Academy train-the-trainer courses were offered in the month of August to additional faculty at universities in Hanoi and Danang.
