CAM Bulletin Number 6 - Feb. 2000
Distance Learning Programme
The interim revision for the Programme was completed in 1998-9 and 13 new students began the programme in spring and summer 1999. Three more have begun in the last few months.
CAM is delighted to welcome the thirteen new students to the Distance Learning Programme in 1999. They are Irina Leyva-Pérez, National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston, Jamaica, W.I.; Bitiyong Y. Bienya'an, National Museum, Jos, Nigeria; Dorothy Elewachi Wamah, National Commission for Museums & Monuments, Lagos, Nigeria; Gloria Chuma-Ibe, Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilisation, National Theatre, Lagos, Nigeria; Vicky Obehi James, National Museum, Lagos, Nigeria; Lucina Shayo, The Village Museum, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Jackson N.L. Washa, National Natural History Museum, Arusha, Tanzania; Lilian Chaonwa, National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe; Ali Abdalla Ali, Palace Museum, Dept. of Archives, Museums and Antiquities, Zanzibar; Brenda Kamanga, Museums of Malawi, Blantyre, Malawi; Cherrie Parris, Kevin Farmer, and Angela Boyce, Barbados Museum & Historical Society, St. Michael, Barbados, W.I.
Beginning in 2000 are Mauri Toa, Cook Islands, and Ava Tomlinson and Ann-Marie Howard-Brown, Jamaica. We expect several more in the next few months.
We wish all of our new Distance Learning Programme members excellent success and much enjoyment in their studies and we welcome them all to CAM membership. We were very pleased to be able to meet the three from Barbados during the Triennial meetings as well as others earlier at the Nairobi workshop in 1997.
CAM is pursuing the necessary funds, developing general course outlines and continuing to discuss collaboration with partners, to be able to produce the fully revised Distance Learning Programme in the next two years.
