GENERAL EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES

Ms. Sherene Williams

Head Of Department (Acting)

Lecturer

We envision the provision of students with qualitative and defining components of their studies. This package of courses is designed to challenge those preparing to teach, to reflect critically on the meaning of the act of teaching as well as the meaning of learning. Through these courses trainee teachers learn that their success depends on a permanent commitment to learning and training, as part of an ongoing appraisal of classroom practice.

The Department is committed to research and community outreach. This has propelled the members of the Department to be constantly involved in research and to be active participants of various research presentations and workshops. The members of the Department continue to serve the needs of many practicing schools as we collaborate in numerous professional development workshops and seminars.

Wisdom flashes the lightning amidst the clouds of the inner sky; one has to foster the flash, and preserve the light. That is the true sign of the “educated" person. (Anonymous)
