    • Overview

      This innovative course looks at how teacher educators can help teachers to use ICT to support learning and develop new teaching and learning approaches that are 21st century-relevant.

      The course centres around the award-winning course Making teacher education relevant for 21st century Africa, which was developed by The Open University, UK as part of the TESSA (Teacher Education in Sub-Saharan Africa) programme. It includes live events such as webinars and other supplementary community activity facilitated by:

      Kris Stutchbury

      Dr Kris Stutchbury, TESSA Academic Director at The Open University, UK

      Nebath Tanglang

      Professor Nebath Tanglang, Director, African Council for Distance Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency (ACDE-QAAA)

      What you will learn

      You’ll explore how to teach active learning and teaching, and how to use ICT to support learning and using OER (open education resources) effectively. This practice-focused course models high-quality teacher education.

These include the TESSA library, which supports teachers and teacher educators who want to implement the sort of teaching approaches highlighted in new school curricula all over Africa.
