A famous Pacific scholastic says nations in the district need to reevaluate their tertiary instruction methodologies.
Brij Lal, emeritus teacher of Pacific and Asian History at the Australian National University, made the remarks in light of the University of the South Pacific’s festival of its Golden Jubilee year.
Teacher Lal began his scholarly adventure with the USP in 1971 three years after it was made.
He said the scholarly world today is more globalized and the locale needs to discuss enhancing the nature of tertiary training for future ages of Pacific Islanders.
“I mean you have various colleges now in the islands. You have the National University of Samoa, you have the Solomon Islands University, there are three colleges in Fiji so I think there must be co-appointment between every one of these colleges so discuss how they can function co-operatively without copying the elements of each other.”
