Facilitating professional development for lecturers

Accelerating based on effective professionalisation strategies

Zone Professional development

Lecturers are the starting point for educational innovation. They are constantly improving their research, but this is not always the same for their education. Certainly when it comes to the use of ICT to improve education. Optimal use of the possibilities of ICT in education requires new knowledge and skills from the most important group that determines the quality of education: lecturers. For that, professional development for lecturers must be embedded in all layers of the organisation, from HR to management.
