11 completes Principle of Andragogy course

The Dominica State College (DSC) will be holding a special graduation ceremony, honouring 11 successful learners who completed the Principles of Andragogy course.

The ceremony will be held on Friday, June 15.

These graduates are all part of a team of subject experts who support the Department of Continuing Education in training people to provide a quality service in Dominica’s tourism sector.

The Principles of Andragogy course equipped the facilitators with professional competence in the preparation, presentation and evaluation of training of adult learners.  To graduate each learner was required to complete a portfolio of assignments and reflections throughout the course and to pass the written assessment at the end of the course. The successful students will receive a Certificate of Competence in the area of adult learning.

Mr. Stephen Joseph, an outstanding lecturer at the Faculty of Education of the Dominica State College, was the facilitator for the Principles of Andragogy course which was held 15th November – 8th December, 2011.

The Organisation of American States (OAS): Dominica provided financial support for this course in its continuous effort to better equip the tourism sector in Dominica with high quality service providers.

The Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) partnered with the DSC to deliver this professional development course.

      Mr. Stephen Joseph is one of the best educators in Dominica hands down. The number of students he has taken the time to educate throughout his adult life is remarkable. He taught my siblings and myself in grade 7 at the Massacre/Canefield government school. Hope government officials pay him his dues while he is still in the prime of his life and not wait till he is dead or too old to enjoy it. Well done sir.

    I really hope that this helps the graduates with either findingm employment or to enhance their prospects if they are in a job already.
    Why we have to use the fancy name “andragogy” for this goes beyond me. I doubt many people in Dominica understand that it simply means “adult learning” and that is what we should call it, especially when we talk about this type of training we should use language that everyone understands.
