The School of Foundation Studies (SoFS) held a virtual “Meet and Greet Session” via MicroSoft Team for the first time on 23 September.
The aims of the 3:30pm session were two fold: to recognize the outstanding achievements of students with the presentation of the Letter of Commendations for top scorers of each unit; and, to offer an opportunity for two-way communication between students and the SoFS management team.
The initiative was borne out of the school’s close scrutiny of student feedback from the various surveys that had been undertaken, and the aim to continually improve the student experience.
In total, 40 students took part in the virtual session, which started with a welcoming message and briefing on student support by the Head of SoFS, Su Sueh Ing, followed by updates from course coordinators.
“This is the first time we conducted it virtually but it is important for the School management team to create opportunities to meet up and connect with our students. It is, of course, also a platform to welcome, motivate and let students know that we are here to support them with good study experience,” said Sueh Ing.
Feedback from students on their study experience were positive and the session ended with the taking of virtual group photos.
