E-Learning Africa, the Continent's leading conference on ICT for development, education and training, will take place in Cotonou, Benin, from May 23rd to 25th, 2012, under the patronage of the Republic of Benin.
It is the key networking event for developing eLearning capacities in Africa, and the call for papers is now open. eLearning Africa is a dynamic forum for sharing the latest research, best practice guidance and case studies on the integration of ICT into education and training for all sectors of economic development, including business, education, agriculture, health delivery and governance.
The overall theme of the conference is eLearning and Sustainability, a topic that sets the stage for lively dialogue on how eLearning can help Africa's development to move onto a sustainable path. eLearning Africa 2012 is inviting practitioners and academics engaged in an African context to submit their proposals about this important topic, which will be explored under five themes:
- sustainable communities;
- appropriate and sustainable technologies;
- sustainable change management;
- sustainable resources and
- sustainable economy, culture and society.
The deadline for receipt of all suggestions for sessions, presentations, workshops and discussions is Monday, January 9th, 2012.
eLearning Africa is a must for anyone involved in or wanting to find out more about ICT for development, education and training in Africa. As the largest gathering of eLearning and ICT-supported education and training professionals in Africa, participants are able to develop multinational, cross-industry contacts and enhance their knowledge, expertise and abilities. eLearning Africa is accompanied by an exhibition area which serves as a central meeting and networking point within the conference, and provides participants with the opportunity to find out about the latest ICT products, services and initiatives.
