How E-learning within teacher education might develop a case study of the ELATE project
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. This paper will explore how e-learning within teacher education might develop synergies which make a contribution to closing that gap in learning resource provisions in secondary schools in Africa. In particular the presentation will outline the aims and objectives of a new E-learning and Teacher Education (ELATE) Project. This is a joint venture between Makerere University School of Education and The Open University in the UK, and is being funded by the British Council. The broad aims of the project are to develop an enhanced e-Learning module within initial teacher education at Makerere and to establish ongoing research on the impact of e- Learning within both teacher education and schools in Uganda.
