Domasi College of Education In-Service Teacher Workshop


Tuesday and Wednesday, June th and 6th, we hosted our first in-service teacher training on teaching democratic citizenship. We held the workshop in the Center for Distance Education on the campus of Domasi college of Education. I led the discussions on the foundations of democracy and citizenship and how those principles should influence our teaching across the curriculum; and, Civitas Malawi country director, Mischeck Munthali, led the discussions about Project Citizen curriculum and activities in Malawi today. Fourteen teachers from the surrounding area attended the first day, then, a few more joined us on the next, for a total of 16 teachers and one District Manager. It was a deeply rewarding experience from which I learned a great deal about the high quality, integrity and commitment of the excellent teachers that attended. Here are some picutures reflecting our experience in the classroom and in the break-out sessions during the two-day workshop.

This afternoon I am off to Zomba, the home of the University of Malawi, the Chancellor's College, to make a one-hour presentation on "Education for Democratic Citizenship." I'll post a report of that event soon. Thanks so much for following my posts. If you have any questions or suggestions, you can send them to me at fay.kelle@yahoo.com. Best wishes, Fay
