The Humanities Department adopts the Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) approach to engage our students in learning the Humanities. Experiential Learning is incorporated in the design of IBL lessons to provide authentic scenarios for students to apply and reflect on their learning progress. The department also infuses ICT into lessons to encourage collaborative learning to prepare students for post-secondary education.
