Product Description

OUT OF WHACK! Illustrates the boldness and radical thinking of one of Malaysia's most passionate educationists, one who spent three decades of his life propagating the development of Lifelong Learning educational opportunities for all. It attempts to break down the conventional stuck-in-the-mud thinking of self-proclaimed elitist policymakers and blue-eyed academicians. The ultimate quest is to incite innovative and reformative actions to uplift the education of generations to come. Having spent five years advancing tertiary upskilling and upscaling programmes in Africa, among other countries, Dr Jayles developed a profound desire to share his valuable expe1iences with the rest of the world. So, he spent the next three years of his life furiously writing his thoughts "straight from his heart." His aim is that his thoughts will inspire educators, trainers and teachers to change the way education and training are conventionally delivered, especially in Malaysia. He wants the learner's latent talents and skills to manifest and play out in his or her later life. In other words, Dr Jayles abhors sticking to the ancient norms of a fixed academic curriculum or pathway that leads to nowhere.
