Distance Education and Teacher Education in Africa
DETA CONFERENCE 2011

A not to be missed conference for those involved in teacher education in Africa.

Background:

Expanding education and improving its quality is central to the development of Africa. If we want to realize the goal of quality education for all, faculties of education in Africa need to take the lead in finding African solutions to our educational challenges. One of the ways of doing this is to meet to share our knowledge with one another.

DETA 2011 will be the fourth Conference of its kind. Like the previous conferences, it will create a unique platform to share knowledge and deliberate on educational issues. DETA 2005 was held at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, DETA 2007 was held at Makerere University in Uganda and DETA 2009 was held at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana. All these conferences attracted more than 170 educationists from more than 20 African countries. DETA 2011 will take place in Mozambique and promises to be an even bigger event.

Building on previous workshops, DETA 2011 will also feature a Pre-Conference Workshop on Open Educational Resources, Getting real about OER in Teacher Education. This is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of OER issues and share your experiences and projects with others.

Plan now to attend this exciting conference of African teacher educators for education in Africa.

Eduardo Mondlane University, Maputo, Mozambique
