The following day, the work began in earnest. I trained and coached four lectures in business communication, presentation skills and Power Point presentations. Interestingly, my training goes along with lectures. I handled a class of 35 Higher Teacher Certificate Students (HTC) in their second year. Therefore, both the lecturers and students benefited from the exercise.
At the end of the assignment, the lecturers were able to master my teaching skills as well as methods and techniques in delivering lectures professionally. They were also able to confidently prepare PowerPoint presentations and use their general presentation skills competently.
The most intriguing part of my assignment is that I came to capacitate staff of the business department, but staff in other departments became interested and joined the classes too. I ended up training more people than I expected. This gave me confidence in the positive effect of the CD4D programme.
