Curriculum Development

After the training, the other major component of the project, curriculum development, in the form of either design of a new study programme or redesign of an existing study programme started at the African universities. This process has involved a range of stakeholders, including students, alumni, public and private organisations and employers and with the assistance from European partners. Each African university has chosen a highly relevant study programme that will be partly or fully redesigned to integrate entrepreneurship, innovation, and sustainability as part of the programme content. The redesigned curriculum will apply student-centred learning, including a range of active and collaborative approaches to teaching and learning, such as, problem-based learning, challenge driven learning, team-based learning etc. and the methods of delivery will involve a range of relevant and available e-learning approaches and tools. Thus, graduates from the redesigned study programmes will be equipped with entrepreneurial and innovative skills for employability and self-employment and awareness of sustainability issues relevant to society. It is hoped that graduates will contribute to promotion of sustainable economic growth and employment through creation of new businesses and jobs for and by young Africans. New enterprises and opportunities will contribute to a more vibrant economy and help stem migration from Africa.

An important part of the implementation is to secure external accreditation through close collaboration between university management and Tanzania Commission for Universities in Tanzania and Ghana Tertiary Education Council in Ghana.
