Distance education and the development of teacher competencies: A case study of the Bachelor of Education external degree programme of Makerere University
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2009 Conference, August 2009, Ghana. According to the Teachers’ Code of Conduct for Uganda’s teachers, ‘a teacher’s chief responsibility is towards child/learner…and the teacher shall guide each child/learner…in order to develop the child/learner in body, soul, character and personality (Ssekamwa 2001:82). Teacher education programmes in Uganda are therefore expected to prepare teachers to fulfil this role so the competencies that teachers acquire during their training should be the kind that will enable them do so (Obwoya Kinyera, Auma- Okumu, et.al 2002:14).
