MAJAC runs for full steam
- januar 15, 2019
It was great to experience the daily life at the media academy in the Gambia – MAJAC or Media Academy for Journalism and Communication, which it rightly says. The new house buzzes with activity on both floors.
Four classes run every day
Below, the Foundation class is underway. Meita Touray teaches, with smile and scarf. Meita is a former student from the first team, who clearly knows what she is doing, although she has never been through a real TUT (Training of Trainers).
This is also the case where Muhammed Ndure teaches the certificate team in press law and ethics. He is also new, nor did he get TOT, but as a previous student from the second team he also knows what good teaching entails – despite the fact that since then he has taken a bachelor’s degree in law and very heavy language.
It was morning.[/vc_column_text]
In the large classroom upstairs, a lecturer from the University of The Gambia teaches in psychology for media people. She is speaking engaged, engaged in her profession, and with lots of slides. The students were there on time, or almost then – because they have learned that.
Meanwhile, the deputy director Demba Kandeh teaches the Advanced Diploma class in TV journalism her in the new computer room. Demba has also not received educational training, but has with a graduate in communication from DMJX and Holland been very successful in translating his own experience into MAJAC’s reality.
