African Association meets Online to promote Distance Education on the Continent

The African Association of Methodist Institutions of Higher Education (AAMIHE) began a series of new initiatives aimed at promoting distance education on the African continent. Bringing together its 23 member institutions, AAMIHE is holding periodical meetings to discuss contextual ways of promoting distance teaching and learning on the African continent, strategies to address the technological needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, and joint fundraising efforts to provide the necessary support for the development of new initiatives. Due to the pandemic, many institutions in Africa had to offer remote education. Also due to the pandemic, AAMIHE had to postpone its annual conference, which was scheduled for December 2020. The officers of the association are President Kongolo Chijika, Past-President Munashe Furusa, Vice-Presidents Julio Vilanculos (Portuguese-speaking area), Rosemary Nyarugwe (English-speaking), and Jacqueline Luhahi (French-speaking) as well as Secretary Ilunga K. Kandolo.
