Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // The Teacher Education and Enhancement Programme (TEEP) is a project being implemented as part of the Commonwealth of Learning (COL)’s Integration of Technology in Teaching, Learning and Assessment (ITTLA) model that works with government agencies towards improved national effectiveness in leveraging open, distance and technology-enabled learning, for quality teacher training. The TEEP project aims to strengthen knowledge and skills in digital teaching, learning and assessment among teachers and other educators. COL is working with the National Teaching Council (NTC) of Ghana to implement TEEP in Ghana as the first-ever national online professional development programme for teachers. This study sought to assess the effectiveness of the first phase of the online training in Ghana which covered Teaching in a Digital Age (DTA). The study adopted a descriptive research design with a population consisting of teachers who participated in the training. A purposive sampling technique was adopted to collect data from 456 teachers. It was found that the online training helped to develop the participants’ competencies and skills in the areas of the training, and the overall quality of the training was found to be very good. // Paper ID 3354
