The College Expands Education Opportunities In Tanzania Through Training
Through ISTEP, Bow Valley College and its partners — the Morogoro Vocational Teachers Training College and the Open University of Tanzania — have developed a teacher-training program for competency-based training in Tanzania. The program is a post-graduate diploma in teacher education, and it is the first of its kind in East Africa.
The College played a number of roles in ISTEP. For example, the team designed four modules in curriculum development, gender equality, open and distance learning, and entrepreneurship. The College also trained approximately 30 master trainers, who will be teaching the post-graduate diploma program. The diploma will be delivered in a blended format with in-classroom training and through open and distance learning using a tool called Moodle.
The post-graduate diploma is now accepting applications.
