UNIVERSITY OF NAMIBIA EDUCATION CONFERENCE (EDUCON) 17-19 SEPTEMBER 2024

| Southern Africa Conference

EDUCON is a bi-annual research conference organised by the School of Education under the Faculty of Education and Human Sciences at The University of Namibia. This year's conference theme is "Fostering Innovative Skills-based Education in the 21st Century for Sustainable Future". The conference will take place on the 17th-19th September 2024, in Windhoek, Namibia.

The 21st century has witnessed unprecedented and disruptive changes that have impacted lives worldwide. These changes have included, among others: high levels of globalization, rapid changes in information and communication technology, 4th and 5th Industrial Revolution, the shift towards a knowledge-based society, disruptive crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic and protracted wars in Ukraine and the Gaza strip, as well as global market competition fuelled by Neo-liberal policies. The unprecedented and disruptive changes have constructed a particular kind of society, a highly complex society, that demands mankind to possess a particular set of skills to successfully navigate one’s way around it and to achieve sustainability.

On the education front, the new and highly complex society demands a new kind of graduate, one with a particular set of skills or attributes to survive in the new society. Higher education, and education in general, are expected to produce a new kind of graduate, one with attributes such as: creativity, versatility, innovativeness, critical thinking, problem-solving, adaptability, and a positive disposition towards team-work. Equally, the world of work has been redefined the world of work across all sectors of the economy, requiring transformation in our daily routines and practices of work. Present day complex society therefore calls for innovative skills-based education for a sustainable future. Through its bi-annual education conference, the EDUCON., the University of Namibia School of Education intends to explore the call of fostering innovative skills-based education in the 21st century for a sustainable future.

The overall objective of the conference is to provide a platform for educators, researchers, policy makers, and education stakeholders to explore the various avenues and possibilities of fostering innovative skills-based education in the 21st century for a sustainable future.

| West Africa Workshop

Mali

La phase II de la Recherche-Action sur la Mesure des Apprentissages des bénéficiaires des programmes d’Alphabétisation (RAMAAII), a développé un guide qui donne des instructions pour élaborer des items permettant de mesurer les compétences et connaissances.

En 2019 (du 28 août au 24 septembre), le Mali, avec l’appui de son partenaire financier, la Direction du développement et de la coopération (DDC)-Suisse, a organisé et tenu un atelier technique pour élaborer des items et un questionnaire biographique et de contexte permettant de mesurer les compétences et connaissances issues des programmes d’alphabétisation, conformément aux instructions données dans ce guide.

Au terme de cet atelier, les participants se sont non seulement approprié le contenu du guide en question, mais ils ont aussi et surtout élaborés :

  • § des items pour évaluer les compétences langagières des processus cognitifs : Identification des mots, vocabulaire, compréhension en lecture et orthographe ;
  • § des items pour évaluer les compétences en numérative des processus cognitifs : calcul mathématique, mesure et résolutions de problèmes ;
  • § des items pour évaluer les connaissances dans les domaines de la citoyenneté, de la santé, de l’environnement et du développement socio-économique ;
  • § un questionnaire biographique et de contexte à l’entrée et à la sortie

Pour les besoins de l’enquête pilote à réaliser, instruction a été donnée par L'Institut de l'UNESCO pour l'apprentissage tout au long de la vie (UIL) d’élaborer des outils en langues nationales pour la réalisation de l’enquête pilote. Chaque pays devant déterminer le nombre de langues nationales pour ce travail d’élaboration.

Le présent atelier de formation porte sur la formation des enquêteurs à la passation des outils RAMAA pour l’enquête pilote.

Educationist John Samuel has contributed exceptionally to public life and the well-being of society at large as a leader at the heart of South Africa’s educational development over his lifetime.

Between 1965 and 1975 he was a teacher, education administrator and policy specialist, working in the secondary and post - secondary school systems in Zambia, England, Ghana and Nigeria. In 1979 he was appointed as the Executive Director the Southern African Council of Higher Education (SACHED). SACHED developed into one of the most innovative and pioneering independent education organisations in the country in the 1980s. Building on its long and successful legacy of developing alternatives to apartheid education, SACHED pioneered new developments in such areas as publishing, distance education, mass education through the newspaper, tutorial and support work for students.

As a result of this work, he was approached to head up the ANC’s Education Department during the transition years, playing a critical role through the establishment of the Centre for Education Policy Development and Constitutional working committee in mobilising education research for change and drafting the education clauses of the Constitution.

Between 1994 and 1997 he was appointed to the first Nelson Mandela government Education Department as DDG for Education Policy and Planning, in which capacity he again played a key role in mobilising research forces and crafting new legislation to sweep away the apartheid inheritance. From 1997 he became active in the work of the Kellogg Foundation, with which he developed a programme for rural education.

From 2000-March 2006 he was appointed Chief Executive to the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Under his leadership the foundation commissioned three major national studies that influenced policy development in this country and internationally, including Emerging Voices (2003-2004). This dealt with the critical challenges of rural schooling. The work resulted in the former Minister of Education setting up a rural school forum to develop strategies to tackle these challenges. He founded the Centre for Memory that became the Nelson Mandela Archives. He also launched the 46664 Concerts, a global platform for a major Aids Awareness Campaign, harnessing the commitment and interest of popular musicians and singers from around the world.

John Samuel is a person whose contribution to education in South Africa over time has been exceptional and deserves recognition. Please attend his lecture.
