Course Overview


Audio-visual methodology is aimed at supporting and empowering people involved in the field of agriculture to define, promote, and take full ownership of their own development, as learning is a life-long process.

Skills development is a key driver of socio-economic development. Mainstreaming of agricultural development efforts is crucial to ensure congruence and effective deployment of resources.

Alien vegetation refers to plants that are not native in a country and have been brought into a country from another. Alien plants threaten the indigenous vegetation as they utilize valuable and limited water resources. Most of them consume more water than indigenous plants and are depleting the valuable underground water resources. The objective is to identify, remove, and where possible prevent the establishment of these alien species.

Who Should Enrol

All people involved in the field of agriculture.

Course Design

A way to bolster agricultural production is to develop practical agricultural education systems. A powerful way of doing this is through the use of audio-visual modules which is a highly effective and tested methodology to approach, examine, and impart knowledge.

This is a comprehensive series of modules that follow a step-by-step process and can be used in group training or self-study – and are structured according to visual training guidelines. This implies defining most of the terminology used and where necessary, supporting the visual storyline with graphics and animation to enhance the learning process and ensure that sustainable knowledge is gained in the learning process.

These modules are designed to do precisely what they are meant to do – and that is to support skills development.
