Bringing people together through knowledge dissemination

ONLINE COURSE CLASSIFICATION

The NSRIC online education platform offers different level of courses as per requirements of students and members. Primarily, the courses are classified into eleven categories. The designated course can be 30 minutes to two hours long. If the course duration is more than this range, it should be broken down into different linked modules (e.g., Module I, Module II, …. etc.), and/or into a half to three credit hours course (Note: one credit hour is equivalent to 12 lecture hours). If the planned course does not fall into any of these categories, contact NSRIC online education division at oed@nsric.ca.

Advanced level academic courses

The topics that are related to advanced level educational materials of the subject areas fall under this category. The recent advancement of knowledge; technologies; research, innovation, and development (RID) findings, and new knowledge can be the course content. In general, the course can be one credit hour to three credit hour long. The course can be a half credit hour too. One credit hour is equivalent to 12 contact hours (i.e., 12 lectures). The researchers, educators, innovators, and RID investors may be the beneficiaries for this type of courses.

Executive courses

The topics refer to mainly professional and refresher (technical and/or management) courses designed to serve the professional development of company leaders and managers. They are considered as part of an ongoing process of lifelong learning. NSRIC executive education reflects the broader world of business management courses. Current business entities suffer in facing the financial uncertainties and the growth of global complexity which are playing an important role in the development of new businesses opportunities. Therefore, topics related to higher level educational and management materials of the subject areas fall under this category. However, this category is more related to organizational executive level training courses related to a specific area of your expertise. It covers management topics related to industry, commercial and financial organizations, research centres, and academic institutions. In general, the course can be one credit hour to three credit hour long. The course can be a half credit hour too. One credit hour is equivalent to 12 contact hours (i.e., 12 lectures). These courses compliment management level staff members of an organization, researchers, educators, and innovators.

Higher-level courses

A graduate course is defined as any course which is above an undergraduate degree course. This includes a Master’s degree or Doctoral degree in a discipline. The classified courses help students go deeper into their field of study. It gives students the knowledge and expertise they need to work in that field. Therefore, topics that are related to higher level educational materials of the subject areas fall under this category. However, this category is more related to university graduate level (MSc/MA, Post-graduate Diploma, PhD level) academic courses linked to a specific area of your expertise. In general, the course can be one credit hour to three credit hour long. The target group include university graduate level students, and professionals who have a BS degree in his/her field of study.

Intermediate courses

A preparatory or foundation year course (NSRIC categorised as intermediate course) is a full degree curriculum and prepares students for their entry into a university. So, the topics that are related to prepare students who have some deficiencies in his/her area of interests to get admission and/or lacking of understanding of the level of study, and/or pre-requisite courses related to university admission. University preparatory courses fall under this category as well. These courses train students in a wide variety of subjects such as arts, humanities, business, biological and life sciences, engineering, technology, natural sciences and even more. The variety of different preparatory and foundation year courses can be overwhelming. In general, the courses benefit fresh high school graduates, students with specific shortcomings, students with special needs, and university preparatory year students.

Foundation-level courses

K12 courses cover the school curriculum which can refer to the topics or subjects taught in school from grades kindergarten through twelve. As it is used in the field of education, K12 courses usually refers to the specific learning objectives and activities experienced by students in grades kindergarten through twelve. Therefore, K12 courses are related to kindergarten to grade XII; K12 courses are classified as elementary courses (K5), middle school courses (K6-K8), and high school courses (K9-K12). In addition, K12 courses covers all disciplines that are prepared for kindergarten to grade XII school. The courses suit boys and girls who are already in pre-school and school, slow learner, school dropout students who to be back in normal school, students who need tutors, and special need students.

Mid-level courses

The mid-level courses are defined as the topics that are directly related to undergraduate education conducted after secondary and prior to postgraduate education. The M-level courses typically includes all post-secondary programs up to, but not including the level of a bachelor’s degree. Therefore, topics that are related to university undergraduate level materials of any subject areas fall under this category. The degree examples are BA/BSc/BCom/BSc Engg.  /BTech/BMS/BBA/BBS/BL/MBBS, etc. The courses are designed to compliment university undergraduate students in his/her areas of interest.

Professional courses

A professional course is a college-level course designed to target the professionals/students who are already in or about to enter into the workforce in a company, corporation, government or technology fields. In addition, the topics that are related to any professional career development in any area of educational and training discipline are also considered in this category. The coverages include any technical, professional training, and development courses in a specific area of expertise. The consideration of taking a professional course will definitely strengthen one’s skills in areas such as team management, computer technology and HSE. The target attendees include junior, mid and high level technical, management level staff, officers, managers, and professionals.

Short and Seminar Courses

A short course is a learning programme that gives student combined content or specific skills training in a short period of time. Short courses often lean towards the more practical side of things and have less theory than a conventional university course. This classified course gives the students a more hands-on experience within his/her field of interest. The topics are related to any professional, and/or hands-on educational materials of a discipline. Seminar courses typically have significantly open short period courses that are generally more specific in topic of study. Seminars can be from any interesting term papers/projects, exams, presentations, and several other assignments. The coverages include technical and professional development courses in a specific discipline. The attendees include any interest group consisting of junior, mid and high level technical, management staff, officers, managers, and professionals. This type of course is usually open for wide categories of interests.

Training courses

Tutorial courses are conducted by a NSRIC tutor for one student or a small number of students ( e.g., 5 – 20 students).Tutorials allow group discussion of lecture content, and assessment; and presentation and debate on themes and concepts related to the course. Laboratory study/experiments, fieldwork, and workshops may also be considered for a small group learning. The tutorial course can be arranged one-by-one based on student’s request in a particular subject area of interest.

Tutorial courses

A training course is a series of lessons or lectures teaching the skills that a student needs for a particular job or activity. In general, there are three main types of training courses carried out in the workplace: (i) induction course; (ii) on-the-job course; and (iii) off-the-job course. It can also be characterized as (i) orientation course, (ii) in-house course, (iii) mentorship course, and (iv) external training course. In addition, it is specified as a course which gives a hands-on practical training, and development a subject matter. The topics are related to any hands-on professional, and/or lab-based training materials of various disciplines. The beneficiaries include any interested target group consisting of engineers, different levels of technical staff, management staff, managers, officers, and senior managers.

Vocational training courses

Vocational training courses are instructional programs or courses that focus on the skills required for a particular job occupation and/or skill. Vocational training education prepares audiences/students for specific careers and thus ignores traditional, unrelated academic subjects. It focuses more on practical work, rather than traditional academic courses. The course is directly related to poly-technique education where practical and hands-on training courses are designed on a subject matter. The topics are related to any hands-on practical, lab-based, application-based educational materials of chosen discipline. The attendees include any interested target group that may include diploma engineers, as well as junior and mid-level technicians.

Workshop courses

A workshop course is defined as a hands-on and practical training experience. However, it can be a course for presenting themes and concepts, or the development of a skill related to the course. Workshops may involve more hands-on learning. It also allow discussion, interaction, presentation and debate on a given topic of a subject area. The courses coverages are the topics related to any hands-on professional, and/or lab-based educational materials of any discipline. The topics are specified as a course which gives a hands-on practical training, and the development of a subject matter. A workshop is a type of interactive training course where participants carry out a number of training activities rather than passively listen to a lecture or presentation. In general, there are five types of workshop courses: (i) invitational workshop (ii) constructivist workshop, (iii) reflection workshop, (iv) conferencing workshop, and (v) choice workshop. The key difference between training and workshop is that training is the action of ‘teaching’, whereas a workshop is where the group will ‘engage’ in an intensive discussion and activity. A workshop, on the other hand, is a corporate event where skills and knowledge can be shared in a group. The coverages include any technical, and professional discussion-based courses in an area of expertise, and student needs.
