Teaching in a rural-based African university: What students want
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2011 Conference, in August 2011, Mozambique. The African rural based universities are faced with a significant number of students who find it difficult, if not impossible to cope with university work. In an attempt to meet the needs of students, a number of South African universities established intervention teaching programmes as early as 1980 in South Africa as described by Adams (2009); du Plessis (2006); Agar (2007).
