The lecture method (Delivering)
It is a method that depends on delivering information to the students by the course instructor accompanied by using the board in organizing and simplifying some ideas. In this method, the learners are the receivers and the teacher is the center of the educational process.
The discussion and dialogue method
This method depends on managing an oral dialogue by the instructor during the teaching process with the aim of getting new information or data.
The problem-solving method
In this method, the instructor discusses a problem with his/her students and explains its dimensions. Then, he/she directs the students to the steps and processes that lead to solving this problem through stimulating them to think and retrieve the information related to the problem and then the instructor assesses the solution arrived at by the students. Thus, there are three stages in this method: Provision, direction, and assessment. The instructor classifies the students into groups for the sake of considering individual variations.
The teaching method in which the instructor and student interact includes
The instructor introduces a subject, a question, or a problem and asks the learner to discuss it and give an opinion about it and try to arrive at a solution.
The instructor classifies the student into small groups each with a leader. Then, he/she introduces a subject or an issue and asks the students to discuss it and to try to arrive at a solution that reflects the group’s point of view.
The dialogue method:
The instructor raises doubt about a particular point or subject and then generates ideas through question until the student arrives at certainty after being doubtful.
Individual and group projects:
The instructor suggests a group of work projects and asks the students with shared interests to participate in a particular project and then complete it at the specified time or assign a project to each student.
The experimental method under the supervision of the course instructor includes
The legal clinic in which the student provides legal consultancies to clients in the pre-trial phase and during the course of the claim. This means that the legal practice will be as a law firm or a legal school where students and the clients will interact with each other as if they are in a real legal situation. This legal practice will be under the supervision of lawyers specialized in training students and the student will be subject to a valid exam.
Practical training in which the learner is involved in work experience to acquire a specific educational experience or a particular skill such as working in the ministries, bodies, and institutions in the public and private sectors.
