About the Course
The course covers fundamental concepts and immerses participants in the practical application of a variety of toolsets, digital resources and strategies for course planning, design as well as creative facilitation and innovative assessment. It espouses the values of gender-awareness, inclusion and participatory engagement: peer to peer, peer to tools, peer to print and digital resources and peer to resource persons. It uses a range of teaching tools such as case studies, simulations, concept maps, and authentic tasks to lead participants to uncover opportunities for experience sharing, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration and reflection in a flexible manner. The course is interactive and responsive to the contexts and circumstances of academics in African Universities. It can be accessed on various equipment including computers, laptops, iPads and smartphones. The course was successfully piloted in June 2020 and has trained about 550 academics from 28 universities in seven African countries: Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and Botswana.
