Comments: The revised STEP Course video presentation (Strengthening Tokples Education in Papua New Guinea (PNG), formerly called Supervisors’ Tokples Education Programme) was originally written and designed by SIL-PNG members Glenys Waters and Michael Jones. It was presented to a review team from Canberra representing AusAID’s NGO’s Cooperative Programme (Australian Agency for International Development Non-Government Organisation). The visit took place in November 2002, at SIL-Australia, Kangaroo Ground, Australia. During 1994-2002, AusAID’s NGO Cooperative Programme partially funded 6-8 participants through nine of the cohorts of graduates. The STEP Course is a non-formal literacy and vernacular language education course. The video describes the STEP course’s content and outcomes. It concludes with comments about sustainability, commitment, and perseverance made by William Edoni, SIL’s Director’s Assistant for Public Relations and chairman of PNG-BTA, through the illustration of one of its graduates and mentors, Selby Otire. After the video finished, Diane Wroge interviewed Mara Iyama, PNG Bible Translation Association STEP Vice Principal, about his involvement with elementary vernancular education training.
