In July, a two-day conference took place in Nairobi at Strathmore University. The conference, attended by DVC Professor David Maughan Brown and organised by Dr Mike Calvert, offered an opportunity to disseminate good practice at the end of a programme for university lecturers. The PCAP programme(Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice) has now been successfully run twice in Kenya and once in Rwanda. The most recent programme has involved 34 lecturers from five universities in Nairobi
The conference attracted delegates from Nairobi and farther afield including two from Tanzania. It is hoped to build upon this work with further courses in Kenya and beyond.
The students will return to Strathmore University for the graduation on 5 October that will be reported on in a future newsletter.
