Education Unit:

 Research thrusts:

  • Curriculum Studies in Agricultural and Vocational Education Programmes

Viable educational programmes are characterized by their ability to change with the changing world . Change will take place in the schools and whether the change is rational or not, will depend upon the research information available to inform and educate stakeholders in agricultural and vocational education. Consequently, conducted research in an area such as : (a) The role of information and communication in technology in agricultural education: (b) Social issues and problems in formal and non-formal agricultural and vocational education; and (c) The perceptions of stake holders regarding relevant concerns in agricultural education should be the basis for recommending changes in the curricula of formal and non-formal agricultural and vocational education programmes.

  • Testing and Assessment in Agricultural and Vocational Education Programmes

Student learning and performance ride on the relevance, reliability and validity of testing and assessment procedures and practices in agricultural education programmes. Research findings make learning assessment an ongoing part of a training and fundamental part of students’ preparation for the world of work in agriculture or agricultural related professions. By focusing research on testing and assessment in agricultural education programmes at different levels, agricultural educators provide the measures by which to define success and recommend changes in the assessment and testing procedures and practices in the programmes.
