Participants at the Project Cycle Management Short Course have commended the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research, ISSER, for putting together the two-week course and are excited
and forward to improving their output at their work places.
The course started on 27th June, 2016and ended on 8th July, 2016 and was coordinated by Dr. Cynthia Addoquaye Tagoe, a Research Fellow at ISSER.
What thrilled the 24 participants the most was the Monitoring and Evaluation session, as well as the field trip to Power Cooperative Pineapple Growers’ Association at Dodowa.
The field trip, exciting as it turned out to be, afforded participants the opportunity to write reports and do group presentations within 24 hours – a task they had not experienced before. They however made the presentations with such enthusiasm and got good feedback from the facilitators.

At the end of the course, the Director of ISSER, Prof Felix Asante congratulated participants for accepting to come and receive knowledge to enhance their work.
He called for comments about the course from participants.
Dr. (Mrs.) Joyce Norgbe of the University of Ghana Health Service Directorate commended ISSER for organizing the course. She, however, had concerns about its brevity and fast rate of teaching.
She suggested that outlines for the following day’s topic/s could be made available to participants to go through before attending classes.
On her part, Dr. Cynthia Tagoe, Acting Short Course Coordinator, appreciated the diversity of the class and was excited to be with them. She was extremely delighted by the field trip to Dodowa and urged participants to put into practice what they learned.
A highlight of the closing ceremony was the presentation of certificates to participants. It was done by the Director, Prof Felix Asante, Dr. Aba Crenstil and Dr. Simon Bawakyillenuo.
