African Peer Training

The African peer training was the last phase in the Jigsaw Classroom, where the trainees, now turned experts, returned from their Expert Groups, ie. the EU Training Teams, to their Home Groups, ie. the Local Task Force teams. to teach their colleagues in the LTF on the four cross-cutting themes. On this page you will find more information about the general organization of these peer teaching and peer learning workshops. You will also find specific information about each of the five workshops, held in the five African universities.

Broadening the knowledge basis – peer teaching and -learning

The five training workshops, one in each African University, aimed at following up on EU training, by giving all members of the Local Task Force teams insight into the 4 cross-cutting themes of the EEISHEA project. Thus, the core of this third f2f training workshop consisted of 4 x ½ day of intensive peer teaching and -learning, where each of the 4 teams of 2 local trainees, turned experts, were responsible for training their colleagues in the Local Task Force on the cross-cutting theme they had been trained on in the EU workshops, applying the training material prepared and applied in the EU training.

Kick-starting curriculum development – an ABC Learning Design workshop

Following the intensive 2-days peer teaching and –learning sessions, the EU team was responsible for running a half-day ABC Learning Design workshop. The ABC Learning Design approach is a visual and hands-on tool for curriculum development at programme and course level. Focus in this workshop was on the initial redesign, partly or fully, of the identified study programme. This included discussions on how to integrate the 4 cross-cutting themes of the project. The intention was to kick-start the process.
