Tiwonge Banda (UbuntuNet Alliance)

As the world continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic, government restrictions aim to distance people to reduce further cases. Many schools and universities around the world remain closed. While these restrictions have significantly impacted education globally, not all outcomes have been negative. The COVID-19 crisis has triggered an online boom for education with many education institutions across the world moving teaching online.  Community efforts to utilise technology in support of online learning during the pandemic is evolving quickly and the demand for instructional design skills is growing by the day.
Join us on 27th May 2020 for a webinar titled “Instructional Design in eLearning”. The webinar ,organised in collaboration with SOMESA Uganda, will provide useful information on how educators can adapt to the new world of teaching and learning by moving education programs online.
