The Teacher Education In Sub Saharan Africa Program


The Open University is one of the largest universities in the world and has been at the forefront in offering open and distance learning, including open educational resources, for decades. This grant would provide support to the Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa (TESSA) project, an internationally-recognized exemplar of OER for teacher training in SSA, to test what it takes to not only provide access to open resources but also enable adaptation of those resources by faculty at four colleges of education in Ghana. This work will help to inform TESSA and the broader OER community about how OER practices can transform teaching and learning.
