Strategies for Improving Teaching and Learning in Universities of Africa. A Report on the International Workshop (Nairobi, Kenya, September 13-21, 1982).
Dewal, O. S.
The objectives of the workshop were to discuss the need for staff development in African universities, explore various means to improve teaching and learning, prepare an outline to set up centers in universities to cater to the needs of staff development, and outline a basic approach for establishing a continental committee to coordinate and reinforce center activities. Four general sessions took place and were concerned with: evaluation of university/teaching/learning; role of distance teaching; curriculum for staff development; and institutionalization of staff development programs. This document concludes with a background paper for the workshop, titled "Toward Improving Teaching Learning Strategy" which outlines four components of a teaching strategy (planning, presenting, involving the students, and evaluating students) and four components of learning (attending to the teacher, assimilating, storing, and recalling). Includes eight references. (JDD)
