Thurab-Nkhosi, Dianne; Lee, Marilyn; Gachago, Daniela
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v2 n1 Oct-Nov 2005
Dianne Thurab-Nkhosi, Marilyn Lee, and Daniela Gianni-Gachago examine the University of Botswana's (UB) e-learning initiative headed by the Educational Technology Unit (EduTech). EduTech promotes change campus-wide by encouraging partnerships among UB's information technology department, library, Center for Continuing Education, and academic staff. Faculty have been included in efforts to define and implement e-learning and are encouraged to use sound course design and pedagogy through course concept checklists and workshops to assist in the course development process. Through large scale collaboration, the university's vision of an increasingly technological basis for academics is fast becoming reality. (Contains 1 figure and 9 exhibits.)
