Quality education

The teaching of values in teacher education

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. Teachers plan lessons and research information needed for effective teaching. What is often forgotten or overlooked is that in the selection of what information to teach they use their own value systems for this selection. What messages this selected information pass on to students go unattended and unevaluated. It is important to note that the process of content and teaching approaches selection includes ways of thinking, warrants of what is valid knowledge to be taught and modes of discourse. It is like there is a prescribed way of thinking that all teachers ought to follow yet this is not the case.

The role of an external examiner in quality promotion

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. Unfortunately, many lecturers do not have formal training as teachers and, hence, are not familiar with some important concepts that would enable them carry out assessment in a well-informed way.

The issues of quality

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The importance of quality in teacher education is well recognized in Nigeria as in all education communities all over the world. Its National Policy on Education affirms that no education system can rise above the quality of its teachers (Nigeria, 1977; revised 1981, 2004). In fact nothing is as important to learning as the quality of the learner’s teacher.

Teaching values in education Kigali Institute of Education Faculty of Education Presentation

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. This topic is to be handled in the wider perspective of the theme of this conference: “Addressing the Quality and Number of Teachers in Africa”. My presentation is based on my musings as a Teacher Educator in Rwanda. These are basically reflections on how to improve the quality and increase the quantity of teachers in that African country; Rwanda. Hopefully, my own reflections will motivate the audience, especially those from Africa, to think about their own countries. Your reactions will, in effect, be a valuable contribution to my manuscript which is still in the process of making.
