How E-learning within teacher education might develop a case study of the ELATE project Presentation

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.

Contextual issues impacting on teacher education Presentation

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The main focus of this research paper is to explore some contextual issues that have left their impacts upon education, specifically teacher education in Japan and Egypt. Following a clarification of the key concepts, two main forces (religion and history) that shaped both societies were discussed. The differences and similarities between teacher education in Egypt and Japan were highlighted in light of contextual issues. Data for this study were collected through reviewing relevant documents in both Arabic and English in order to pinpoint how contextual issues affected certain elements in teacher education in both countries. Qualitative data specifically on Egypt were utilized to have an understanding of how pre-service and in-service teachers perceive some current status of the teaching profession.
