The Student and Alumni Centre (SAC) in support of the 3Es initiative launched the KDU Empowerment Programme. The programme kicked-off by introducing a mentorship programme carrying the theme, “Partnership for Success”. The programme aims to bring value to students by contributing significant support to students’ success.
In January 2015, KDU engaged Dr. Diana, a psychologist and Associate Professor from University Malaya to be the consultant and trainer for this programme. A total of 40 academic staffs participated in this training session whereby they learned about effective teaching, basic counselling skills, and the mentoring relationship. The knowledge was aimed to enable our lecturers to be well prepared to better support students in their academic, emotional and social well-being.
The participants at the trainers’ session said that they believed that by giving personal and one on one attention to students will enhance the students’ learning journey. Students are well taken care of and are able to tap into reliable resources when they run into difficult times. This humanistic relationship between lecturers and students benefit both parties in long run as they learn from each other.
On 24th February 2015, the first batch of students and their mentors were gathered for a briefing to learn about the benefits of mentorship, its roles and responsibilities, and every other area in relation to mentorship.
