Caribbean Community Media Workshop, St. Vincent & the Grenadines

The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) ran a workshop on Learning Media, in St Vincent & the Grenadines on 18-20 November 2008. Sixteen media workers from seven Caribbean countries came together to study good practices in educational media and innovative approaches for developing effective learning programmes for radio.

The group included representatives of new and established community radio stations, school- and college-based radios, as well as public media units from education and agriculture ministries. Over the course of the three-day workshop, participants designed programme frameworks addressing community priorities including youth violence, effective parenting, farming livelihoods and HIV/AIDS; four trainer-facilitators were also trained in participatory facilitation techniques.

The workshop is part of COL’s Media for Learning programme and contributes towards the long term goal of greater access to effective learning opportunities through media.
