No training should come in a vacuum. All training should be informed by performance gaps. Pedagogy must be a living organism that cannot afford the luxury of remaining static. To assume relevance and potency and fulfil and keep pace with the needs of a diversified student clientele, pedagogic experiences should always show signs of dynamism and evolution.
