Teacher education and development in Africa: the need for access, equity, sustainability, quality and relevance within the context of globalization
Expanding education and improving its quality is central to the development of Africa. If we want to realize the goal of quality education for all, faculties of education in Africa need to take the lead in finding African solutions to our educational challenges. One of the ways of doing this is to meet to share our knowledge with one another.
