A Virtual Discussion Forum


Every two weeks, we present for discussion, topical issues on teaching and learning in higher education in Africa. The consensus of the views are collated and posted on this page. As much as possible, the topics in the modules of the Guide will be basis for generating the discussion themes.


Current Discussion Topic/Theme Gender equity is at the heart of the educational delivery process. The UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education emphasises this concept in its Framework for Action. Discuss the strategies that have been found to be potent in your institution or country for promoting gender equity in access, participation and completion at the higher education level.
