The eLearning Africa annual conference and exhibition, which was established in 2005, is the largest and most comprehensive knowledge sharing event for technology-enhanced education, training and skills on the African continent.
The eLearning Africa is looking for participants for the Call for Papers. Africa needs a new model for learning and development; a plan to point the path ahead to a future full of opportunity. It needs an agenda to turn the African Union’s 2063 Vision into reality.
Now, in a world in which change is constant, where Africa is set to become the fastest growing region on the planet with its youngest population, African countries have the chance to entrench sustainable and equitable development. Africa can become self-reliant and resilient, as never before.
What must be done to build this new model? How can it be implemented across Africa? How can Africa give its people the education they need to become self-reliant and resilient? How can Africa’s new model learning support the sustainable and equitable development that will underpin productivity, prosperity and peace? And how can it help Africa to lead the world to a new age of cooperation and global community?
