Nafukho, Fredrick, Kangethe, Simon and Mutema, Alfred M.

Abstract:
This article argues that innovative teaching /learning methods are quickly replacing the traditional methods which were characterised by straight lectures, large group demonstrations and apprenticeships.  The current knowledge revolution requires innovative educational methods in the training of professionals.  The current emphasis is to place the learner at the centre of the learning process.  This emphasis shifts the responsibility of teaching/learning from the teacher to the learner.  The paper specifically discusses the training of health professionals at Moi University and the innovative training strategies employed in the training.
