“Flexible Learning: Responding and Reimagining Education in Ghana.” This project is a partnership between Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC), U.S. Embassy Accra and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to provide capacity building and technical assistance to faculty toward enhancing virtual instruction at KNUST.

Objective 1: Assess faculty and institutional capacity to implement flexible learning and online teaching. TIEC and KNUST will survey faculty readiness for online instruction, conduct faculty and administrator interviews, and review institutional policies and procedures regarding flexible and online learning.

Objective 2: Increase institutional and faculty capacity through (a) synchronous, virtual professional development regarding flexible learning and online teaching, (b) guided online course production, and (c) training-of-trainers for exponential impact. Workshops present experiential learning opportunities while modeling effective online learning environments. Workshops include understanding online learning, student engagement, and humanizing teaching and learning, online course design, and sustaining quality online learning.
