The primary goals of higher education institutions are enhancing and maintaining academic excellence, scholarship, and public service. Expectations of education quality, the changing technology and its impacts on teaching and learning, the rubric of assessment, and the changing paradigms in teaching and learning are some of the challenges faced by the teaching fraternity all the time.
The unprecedented growth of tertiary institutions in the past decade has led to a shortage of updated and well trained faculty members and has created a quality challenge for education. There is a need for well-trained faculty members who will help improve programmes to produce quality graduates. To help faculty develop an aptitude for life-long learning and exposure to advances in their field through continuing training and exposure to new knowledge, the Association of African Universities (AAU) is offering a 4-day training workshop on faculty development.
The workshop will provide a forum for discussion, resource sharing, and application of various research, teaching technologies and pedagogies. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
All lecturers, learning and training instructors, educational researchers and administrators, directors and coordinators of distance education, registrars, curriculum designers and developers, eLearning managers and coordinators, ICT programme directors and managers, and general practitioners of scholarship and teaching are specially invited.
