Communicaton of Curriculum Content in Universities in Kenya
Macharia, Juliet W.
African Higher Education Review, v1 Jun 2008
The history of Education in most developing Countries shows that higher education has grown tremendously. In 1960's a Country such as Kenya had only one University but today, she boasts of seven public Universities and very many private ones. With expansion, student's numbers have increased. As a result of the needs and demands of a growing economy, many new programmes have been designed in order to meet the country's needs in a globalised content. This paper explores the expansion of higher education in Africa, focusing attention on communication of curriculum content to large numbers of students in public and private Universities. Important in this context is the development, access and use of information communication technologies (ICTS) in the delivery of course content. The challenges that face higher education will be discussed and suggestions on how to meet those challenges will be explored. A bibliography is included.
