TUNING AFRICA SYMPOSIUM ON RESEARCH AND GOOD PRACTICE
IN COMPETENCES-BASED STUDENT-CENTRED APPROACH IN HIGHER EDUCATION

 
 


The African Engineering Education Association (AEEA) was the major outcome of the 3rd African Regional Conference on Engineering Education (ARCEE) that was held in Pretoria, South Africa, between 26th and 29th September, 2006 following the 1st & 2nd ARCEEs that were held in Lagos, Nigeria.

One of the main activities of the AEEA is to hold ARCEEs. Four ARCEEs have been held to date.

 




In September 2002, the Federal Government of Nigeria lent her support to the commencement of the African Regional Conference on Engineering Education (ARCEE) which took place at the University of Lagos, Nigeria.

In the desire to give the conference an identity, a Steering Committee was formed in 2004 at the end of the 2nd ARCEE at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. Among other things, the Committee was to decide on an appropriate name under which the African stakeholders in engineering education would meet biennially. Read More

This appointment is an honour not only for the President but also for AEEA.

It on record that the Chinese government has consistently been promoting quality engineering education in Africa since 2009 when twenty one (21) engineering education experts from ten (10) African countries were flown to Beijing for a three week workshop on engineering education and project management at Tsinghua University. The programme was fully funded by the Chinese government. We appreciate the Chinese government in general and the Chinese academy of Engineering and Tsinghua University in particular. 

 

 
 
   
 

CHINA LAUNCHED HER 1ST PHASE OF MOOC IN AFRICA

The African Engineering Education Association (AEEA), under the leadership of Prof. Funso Falade, Dean, Faculty of Engineering as the President, has a long standing relationship with the Tsinghua University Centre for Engineering Education (now International Centre for Engineering Education, UNESCO Category II Centre).  The focus of the relationship is majorly in the area of contribution to the promotion of quality engineering education in Africa via capacity building approach.  In 2016, Professor Falade was invited to Tsinghua University as the representative from Africa along with others from other developing countries around the world.  One of the places visited was the Tsinghua University MOOC centre.  

He requested the Authorities of Tsinghua  University to locate the beaming centres of their MOOC facilities in Africa as a way of further promoting education in Africa.  The request was approved.  The proposed implementation strategy suggested the first phase of the project is to be located in West Africa Sub-region with the pilot project at the University of Lagos.  The proposal was accepted and the Authorities of Tsinghua University working with the Chinese Academy of Engineering obtained permission from the Chinese government for the project.  The platform has been developed.  It is http://unilag.xuetangx.com.  The platform was launched on 22nd May, 2017. This represents the 1st phase of Chinese MOOC in Africa. This will also extend to other sub-regions in Africa in a stepwise manner.
