The mainstay of teaching is to advance the knowledge of learners in line with the community needs. This would involve the use of modern teaching tools and instructional strategies to enrich the learners’ knowledge and competence. This teaching exercise has been shown to be more effective when the learners are given the power and liberty to choose their learning pace, preferred learning styles and the faculty role is framed about facilitating the entire learning phenomenon.
