Liberian Educator Dr. Charles Gbollie has underscored the need for more interventions to be made in evidence-based research development which he added is a key pillar to the improvement of the sector.
Speaking to our reporter Thursday, Dr. Gbollie said if the sector must get on par with the globe than it is paramount to learn from best international practices as well as the crafting and or formulation of new strategies for both the students and stakeholders to implement.
According to him, his recent survey conducted in Montserrado and Margibi Counties show that method context strategy which is globally practiced is best suited in getting the needed results from Liberian students than the old age traditional method of teaching in Liberia.
He said the method strategy shows deeper approach of learning with reliance in future performance and references and not the old age study, passed, memorized and go method, which he noted is not reliable.
The Liberian Journalist turned Educator emphasized that self-education with confidence building is more advantageous than memorization as such he called on teachers and Liberian students to do more in fully equipping themselves for future challenges ahead.
“Stop Memorizing”, Dr. Gbollie, warned Liberian students.
Dr. Gbollie, a young Liberian writer and Journalist who just returned from China with a Doctorate Degree in Developmental and Educational Psychology from the Normal University in China called for more to be done in Liberia’s Educational Sector to ensure the sector is revamp for the betterment of the future generation of the Country.
He praised Liberian students studying in China for their ongoing excellence performances.
According to him Liberians are very smart and can stand up to any challenge globally, once they are giving such opportunity to explore.
He used himself as an example after obtaining undergraduate degree in Liberia from the African Methodist Episcopal University, (AMEU) in Sociology and later had a government opportunity for foreign studies and maximized such opportunity by graduating with honors both from graduate and post graduate levels respectively, indicating further that other young and potential Liberians can do the same and even more as well.
Charles who also served as President for Liberian students studying in China encouraged his colleagues to build on the good spirit of service to Community, Country or the larger society.
Service he noted is key to all regardless of reward but should be done with passion, dedication and commitment.
As a true beneficiary of the Diplomatic ties between Liberia and China, Dr. Gbollie commended both Countries for the cordial ties subsisting between them and urged citizens of both Countries to hugely maximize such opportunity.
Charles speaking further noted that he has a vision to give back to society and to as well help empower his peers including making the world better through young people.
The Liberian young doctor has written two motivational and inspirational books for the general populace but with more attention on the young and future leaders of Liberia.
