These roundtable debates on the topic “Schools and Universities in Sub-Saharan Africa: What space for learner-centered education, innovation and research?” are based on input from two research projects funded by the Robert Bosch Academy, supplemented by contributions from invited discussants. The event is organised by the Robert Bosch Academy in Berlin and ESSA – Education Sub Saharan Africa.

The first roundtable debate will focus specifically on the space for learner-centered pedagogy in curricular reforms, classroom practices and in-service teacher training in primary and secondary education in West and Central Africa. It will include a contribution from Michel Carton, who will be representing NORRAG. The second roundtable will deal with the vision and mission of research and knowledge transfer of public universities in Eastern and Southern Africa.

NORRAG will be represented by Michel Carton, who will highlight the importance of the education and training continuum, looking in particular at the quality of teachers, trainers and entrepreneurs (school system, training centers and informal sector).
