Abstract

Young students are strongly required to have increased ability of critical thinking, versatile adaptation and basic competency, and knowledge to survive a new age. It is highly demanded that educational institutes develop the new type of education styles so that students can foster their generic skills and gain enough strength to deal with unexpected problems in their future. In order to implement such educational style successfully the new course for the first year students has been designed since the year 2015. The program specially designed to promote an active learning manner among students and to build up the foundation of generic skills was executed as a part of the new course.
