Digitisation of education is a top priority of Phase III of the CEMEREM Programme
La numérisation de l’enseignement est une priorité absolue de la Phase III du programme CEMEREM.

The DIGI-FACE programme provides our Centre of Excellence, CEGLA, with invaluable support for the digitalisation of university teaching. This is the first time that such an initiative has been undertaken in two CEGLA member universities. We benefit from DIGI-FACE through online training courses, by receiving equipment for the production of educational content as well as consultancy support if necessary.
Le programme DIGI-FACE apporte à notre Centre d’excellence le CEGLA, un appui inestimable pour la digitalisation des enseignements universitaires. C’est la première fois qu’une démarche de cette nature est entreprise dans deux universités membre du CEGLA. A travers DIGI–FACE NOUS BÉNÉFICIONS DE FORMATIONS POUR LA MISE EN LIGNE DE COURS, du matériel pour la réalisation de différents contenus pédagogiques ainsi que d’un appui-conseil en cas de besoin.
Digitisation of education is a top priority of Phase III of the CEMEREM Programme. The objective is expected to culminate in the setting up of a state-of-the art digital classroom as well as the launch of online and blended programmes at Taita Taveta University which will extend the regional reach of CEMEREM. This dream could be realised earlier than the hitherto planned schedule. This is due to equipment support received from DAAD through the DIGI-FACE Programme.
La numérisation de l’enseignement est une priorité absolue de la Phase III du programme CEMEREM. Cet objectif devrait aboutir à la mise en place d’une salle de classe numérique de pointe ainsi qu’au lancement de programmes en ligne et mixtes à l’université de Taita Taveta, ce qui permettra d’étendre la portée régionale du CEMEREM. Ce rêve a pu être réalisé plus tôt que le calendrier prévu jusqu’à présent. Ceci est dû au soutien en équipement reçu du DAAD par le biais du programme DIGI-FACE.
The “African Excellence” programme was developed in 2008 to improve academic education qualitatively and quantitatively in a sustainable manner. On the one hand, the programme is designed to increase the quality of teaching and to widen the research environment of selected universities in sub-Saharan Africa, with the cooperative support of German universities. On the other hand, it was also designed to train students to develop ‘soft skills’ such as leadership, decision-making and managerial abilities, in addition to supporting their personal development. The main goal of this programme, therefore, is to educate Africa’s future decision-makers, leaders and experts – for the continent’s benefit. In order to meet these goals, the DAAD supports cooperation projects – with a budget from the German Federal Foreign Office – between German and African universities. Consequently, the partner universities in each project can flexibly use the different sponsorship instruments offered by the DAAD. For instance, they can put them toward training courses for teaching staff from African universities, courses for administrative personnel, scholarships for studying on-site, and even to facilitate mobility opportunities for students, teaching staff and project managers. These funds can also be invested in summer schools and conference participation. more
