CURRICULUM REVIEW WORKSHOP -SPADE PROJECT


The School of Planning and Architecture recently held a Curriculum Review Workshop aimed at capacity building of Staff to develop curricula, modules and materials.

Participants at the workshop, who were drawn from different Schools, were equipped with skills and knowledge on constructive alignment of learning objectives, teaching activities, student assessment and student centred learning.

Dr. Denyse Snelder, Senior Specialist Sustainable Land and Water Management at the Centre for International Cooperation at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and a facilitator at the workshop, says that curriculum needs to meet demands of the labour markets.

“Curriculum development should be done while paying attention to competencies present at the curriculum level.” She explains.



The workshop was organized by the Spatial Planning to Agribusiness and Public Policy Development (SPADE) project in Greater Western Kenya, which is a partnership of Maseno University, Moi University, VU University of Amsterdam, Dutch Alliance for Sustainable Urban Development in Africa (DASUDA) and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).

The project is a capacity building project to link Spatial Planning to Agribusiness and Public Policy Development in Greater Western Kenya. It is a partnership of Maseno University, Moi University, VU University of Amsterdam, Dutch Alliance for Sustainable Urban Development in Africa (DASUDA) and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).

“If the curriculum is not grounded on pedagogical issues then there arises implications on programme delivery,” notes Dr. George Wagah, SPADE Project Director, Maseno University.
Dr. Wagah further explains that capacity building would help in the delivery of market oriented programmes.
