- The College of Education Management Information System (CEMIS) Launch
The College of Education Management Information System (CEMIS) launch is an event organised by the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) with support from Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) scheduled for Wednesday 21st October 2020 at the NCTE conference Hall at 10:00 am.
CEMIS is an initiative of the National Council for Tertiary Education which has been implemented with support from Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL). CEMIS plays an important step in enabling NCTE to have access to real-time data from all 46 public Colleges of Education which will be used to support policy formulation, data analysis, planning, monitoring and evaluation of issues relating to teacher education. Within the Colleges of Education themselves, CEMIS will help to improve decision making, information management and accountability and will also host e-library for use by the colleges of education community.
In addition to the CEMIS launch, the event will be used to share success stories on the Colleges of Education eLearning Fund and Wi-Fi connectivity rollout which has enabled 27 CoEs to dare to improve connectivity and capacity to support blended learning.
- T-TEL Project Closure Learning Event
T-TEL, a 6-year $34 million Government of Ghana project funded by UK Aid and implemented by Cambridge Education in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and its agencies, has supported the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE), 5 universities and 46 public Colleges of Education to successfully introduce the new Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) degree in Initial Teacher Education for all new entrants to the teacher education system. Through this support, T-TEL has enabled Ghana to introduce the most far-reaching and successful reforms to pre-service teacher education anywhere in Sub-Saharan Africa with external evaluations demonstrating the tremendous impact which these reforms have had on the knowledge, attitude and behaviour of beginning teachers, student teachers and tutors nationwide.
These reforms have been truly Ghanaian owned and led. This has attracted international praise and commendation with a panel of expert international assessors describing the new curriculum as ‘truly world-class’. As this phase of the project is ending, the essential structures and policies are in place for Ghana’s initial teacher education institutions to continue to achieve great success and act as an exemplar to the rest of the continent.
The Project Learning Event, entitled ‘Transforming Teacher Education and Learning over Time and Space: The Ghanaian Story’ is scheduled for Thursday, 22nd October 2020 from 10:00 am GMT.
This event would recount on the transformative changes in pre-service teacher education, how Colleges transitioned to Emergency Remote Teaching and the impressive progress made in promoting Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in all 46 public Colleges of Education.
