Saskatchewan Polytechnic (Formally SIAST) led a team of technical assistants who worked in country with the IC4 faculty and trained them in developing both curriculums and pedagogical skills related to industry driven curriculum. Sask Polytech guided the training of senior staff in institutional strategic planning through a series of study tours to Canada. Through these tours, the IC4 faculty and the senior staff observed, first hand, the industry driven curriculum development models and innovative instructional strategies and adapted these practices to the management context at IC4.
