351 STUDENTS ENROLLED

The Digital Pedagogy Skills Course is offering practical digital skills to teachers, lecturers, teaching professionals and trainers of trainees in facilitating digital learning.

This course will help teachers and all educators in the purposeful application of new technologies to enhance teaching and learning using ICTs.

It will help you as a teacher transform how you approach and think about teaching using available ICT for education tools in order to amplify learning and develop your own digital learning materials, improve your content access & interactivity while keeping your value in the education cycle at the top level.

New ‘Digital’ Pedagogies have emerged which  have shifted the focus of teaching away from teaching to learning, content delivery to interaction, face-to-face towards an online, interactive, constructionist pedagogy, which can be led by the student, as much as the teacher.

This Digital Pedagogy Skills Course will inspire you as a teacher to develop the mind-set, skills and knowledge to create digital hybrid courses rich with digital content for subjects you are already qualified in, as well as student engagement and mentoring suitable for the 21st century learner- with good pedagogical considerations.

This self paced learning course (also offered in class at Makerere University Department of Journalism and Communication) equips teachers/instructors for better provision of relevant content in video, audio, graphics, animations and or relevant virtual reality that will make teaching and learning of related content interactive and interesting among the students.

The course makes a case for adoption of education technologies and new ways of teaching for better learning experiences and outcomes.

At the end of the course, you will get a Certificate in Digital Pedagogy Skills from Makerere University if you obtain the necessary pass mark of 60% in the assignments, tests and project.
