Every year for the past 4 years, UB has held its biannual community outreach in which students, enrolled in the department of education, under the guidance of their professor, Dr. Thomasine Baker, coordinate and prepare workshops and symposiums for teachers and students alike at the primary school level.
This year, is no different. We spoke to two of the students in charge of Motivational Education who explained the work that they will be doing at the Garden City Primary School in Belmopan this coming Thursday.
Reporter Emanuel Pech: “What sort of presentations will be done at the Garden City?”
“Our group is responsible for different presentations on psychology of learning, for example, motivation, retention of learning, preparation for PSE, career opportunities and transfer of learning. These presentations are geared to inform students, teachers and parents on different approaches and strategies that they can use to improve learning in the classroom and to get the best student academic performance”.
Reporter Emanuel Pech: “What is the overall objective of the project?”
“Well as it is called, a community outreach project, it is a Symposium that we go out into the community to inform persons as teachers, students and we even have invited parents to come in and become highlighted about this information that we believe will assist them in different areas of education”.
The event will be held this Thursday, April 10th at the Garden City Primary School, in Belmopan from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
