A new workshop has been introduced by Microsoft Africa Development Centre (ADC) and Microsoft Leap that was built especially for university professors who instruct technology-focused courses.
With the help of this program, university instructors will have the opportunity to work with other educators, develop their abilities, and discover best practices they may use in their instruction.
With a 12-week course beginning on March 6th, educators will gain a deeper grasp of the demands of the technology industry through a combination of classroom and hands-on instruction.
The program’s objective is to spur changes in university curricula that better reflect the demands of the tech sector.
With a curriculum taught by Microsoft Leap educators, the initiative will work with engineers from the ADC, Nairobi, to develop abilities.
Teachers will also receive training on Microsoft technologies, which are widely used in schools around the world and could be deployed in Kenyan lecture halls, in addition to technical programming and hybrid classroom instruction.
Additionally, the initiative will provide technical instructors with the tools they need to offer well-known Microsoft solutions including Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Power Platforms.
The initial group of 23 educators comes from both private and state universities, including Kirinyaga University, Multimedia University, and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
The others are Zetech University, USIU-Africa, Kabarak University, KCA University, Strathmore University, and Africa Nazarene University.
