COL's Higher Education Initiative
Faced with burgeoning demand for higher education, various African countries are planning to establish open universities and are seeking COL’s help. Although ODL is now deployed by many conventional institutions, the staff members involved often lament their lack of qualifications for teaching within this new approach. COL assists with: • Policy generation with the national governments; • Training of trainers for all aspects of ODL; • Capacity development at various levels of university systems, particularly in the area of quality assurance; • Development of materials, models and guides on key areas of ODL; • Establishment of Commonwealth-wide partnerships to work on critical issues; • Continued support for institutions offering the COL Commonwealth Executive MBA/MPA Programmes and Post-Graduate Diploma Programme in Legislative Drafting.
