Lecturer gives text books to uni bookshop


A SENIOR lecturer at the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) has presented grade 11 business studies text books to the university’s bookshop to support secondary school teaching and learning.
Business and Public Policy lecturer Panditha Bandara said the book had been designed and developed in PNG using examples from local business environment using simple language appropriate for secondary school level students.
“The book consisting of end-of-chapter revision exercise and 100 multiple choice questions with answers,” he said.
According to Bandara, since the introduction of this subject in secondary schools there were no textbooks for teachers and students to use and that caused considerable difficulty for effective teaching and learning.
He said this made him write the book to ease some of this difficulty and become a learning and teaching companion.
He added that the content covered comprehensive grade 11 business studies syllabus.
The author also released the sixth revised edition of introductory accounting for Papua New Guinea.
He presented the books to the vice chancellor professor Frank Griffin at the launching ceremony in the presence of pro vice chancellor Vincent Malaibe and professor Betty Loavi, executive dean of School of Business and Public Policy professor Lakshmi Pillai, registrar Roboam Kakap and the academic staff of the accounting division last week.
He said the books were available at UPNG Bookshop and Theodist Ltd and secondary schools.
