Second private medical college in Kandy

Sri Lanka’s second private medical college will be opened in Kandy. Plans have been finalized and construction work will begin soon, said Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake.

The minister said there is a heavy drain on foreign exchange due to a large number of Sri Lankan students seeking higher education abroad. Since the duty of a government is to ensure a supply of education facilities to fit the demand, it had decided to fulfil this need by starting private medical colleges and technological institutions.

He said he had introduced six degree awarding institutions using powers vested in him as this was the latest trend in neighbouring countries such as India and China.

He said new facilities were also being introduced in state universities under this new program.

He said a new Engineering Faculty has been launched at the South Eastern University and a Faculty of Management has been started at the Peradeniya University.

Two new engineering faculties would be started at the Sri Jayewardenepura and Kelaniya Universities and another two medical faculties would be started at the Jaffna and Sabaragamuwa Universities.

The first ever training course relevant to this field in Sri Lanka, the workshop is organized by the Department of Economics of the University of Colombo and the Russian Tourist Guide Lecturers’ Association. Many tourists visiting Sri Lanka are on the lookout for investment opportunities in the country. Such tourists are also a major and reliable source that could provide details of investment opportunities available in Sri Lanka to their home countries. To inform professional tourist guides largely engaged with tourists regarding investment and business opportunities in the country, would in turn help attract foreign investments to the country. As such, the main objective is to inform them in this regard

Participants’ knowledge on investment opportunities in Sri Lanka, government incentives and policy consultation for foreign investments, positive thinking, leadership skills and communication skills are expected to be improved. As they would be educated in healthcare, health safety, sustainable and environmental standards, their practical knowledge in preparing project reports would also be improved.

Promotion Officers of the Sri Lanka Investments Board, Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority officials and University Lecturers too would engage as resource persons of the workshop. A valuable certificate for participants who successfully complete the one-day program would be issued by the Department of Economics of the University of Colombo.

Those interested in this regard, may obtain further details by calling Asanka Senanayake on 0718716755 and the Chairman of the Russian Tourist Guide Lecturers’ Association on 011258266 or 0716060995.

Russian Medical University to be open in Srilanka soon

MOS Lanka Holdings, a Sri Lankan based diversified company in Russia is negotiating with a Russian Medical University to set up a University in Sri Lanka. “This Russian University is keen to set up a University in Sri Lanka so that they could also have an intake of students from the South Asian Region.

He said that they are also in talks with a Sri Lankan private sector hospital so that they could get their assistance to train students who study in this proposed University. “We are now currently working with government authorities to obtain the necessary approvals”.

E-learning to boost mathematics skills for students

Forty secondary schools started using new mathematics e-learning programs to boost students’ mathematics ability and to determine if e-learning should be incorporated into mathematics lessons nationwide.

“Boosting mathematics skills and critical thinking is essential in today’s modern world. Computer technologies can complement regular classroom teaching in a way that can bring everyone up to international levels in an individual way,” said Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) South Asia Department Director Sungsup Ra.

Under a $ 725,000 grant, ADB has translated the mathematics e-learning programs of Khan Academy and Math-Cloud into Sinhala.

These will be used in 20 schools each as part of daily a mathematics lessons on a six month trial basis through to the end of 2014. Student performance will then be assessed to determine how effective the programs were in boosting students’ mathematics achievement and confidence.

In many developing countries, the quality of education suffers due to weak teacher training, inadequate school facilities and equipment, and outdated curricula.

Although many governments in Asia see the value of introducing information communication technologies into schools, the focus has largely concentrated on providing computers and other hardware, rather than the software and computer programs needed to make use of them. The result is that many students in the region leave school with an education that is ill-fitted to a modern global economy.

In Sri Lanka, around half of 16year olds have to retake the exams necessary to advance to their last two years of schooling. The government has been working to find ways of improving the quality of mathematics education in the country’s 9,905 schools, including introducing more software-based platforms to promote more dynamic learning and teaching.
