More courses desired in education
It is reckoned that Dedactic Skills is about the only follwo-up course being offered by the Department of Education. Given its practical relevance to the day to day life of the professionals, this course alone seems to attract wide range of other MSc students besides the MAKS students. It teaches the students on how rather than what to train. We feel this type of training would be useful for the teaching staff at any learning centers, probably including WAU. It has relevance not only to formal aspects of teaching, but also in non-formal and informal interaction with people.
The fact that the course in Education seems to interest wide range of students, it would be desirable to have some more advanced follow-up courses in education in areas such as: education research, curriculum development, evaluation in education, which are of practical importance since we feel education is the basis in preparing students for new challenges in development.
