We are delighted to welcome two CAPREX fellows from Makerere University, Uganda to the Faculty of Education. Dr. Harriet Nabushawo and Dr. Henry S. Busulwa are collaborating with Dr. Mark Winterbottom on research which they will be presenting as follows:

LEARNER SUPPORT IN OPEN AND DISTANCE LEARNING : A CASE STUDY OF THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION EXTERNAL PROGRAMME OF MAKERERE UNIVERSITY (Dr. Harriet Nabushawo & Dr. Mark Winterbottom)

In Open and Distance Learning (ODL), the teacher and student are separated in time and space most of the time. However, to ensure continuity of teaching and learning processes, learner support mechanisms are usually put in place to keep the students motivated. The organisation of these services varies from one institution to another and also depends on the context. This paper examines the organisation and effect of learner support services on the development of teacher competencies in the Bachelor of Education External programme.

DISCOVERING THE WEALTH IN UNDERSTANDING ECOSYSTEMS INTERACTIONS (Busulwa Henry Ssebuliba & Dr. Mark Winterbottom)

The need to improve understanding of ecological interactions can enable learners to discover the wealth and opportunities provided by ecosystem surrounding them through approaches where learning takes place outside the classroom. An interactive learning resource book that advocates for environmental conservation through biology-ecology lessons is being prepared to enable learners to solve simple environmental challenges and appreciate the interdependence of the environment with human beings in conserving ecosystems’ benefits and functions, hence making learning realistic and relevant.
