Partial distance-learning training for information technology higher education trainers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Teachers must be able to adapt to a rapidly changing IT knowledge and technology. This requirement is further compounded by the need that this knowledge and technology be incorporated in the curriculum at the same rate. This paper presents a strategic approach for updating curriculum and technical know-how of information technology through training the IT trainers. This approach is expected to help modernize the IT training in the developing country by educating the youth who are at the receiving end of this training. In order to ensure the economic feasibility of this approach, teaching methods conducted were based on a combination of traditional methods and modern distance learning techniques.
