Widening access to education as social justice : essays in honor of Michael Omolewa by Akpovire Oduaran( )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Access to education for all, everywhere, is among the priorities advanced by the International Panel on Democracy and Development. It would be illusory to seek to promote development or to claim to strengthen democracy without focusing, at the same time, on eradicating the scourge of illiteracy, which still, today, affects one adult in five in the world. Universal access to education, a gage of social justice, is much more than a right--it is an open door to freedom: the freedom to initiate, to act and to take one's own destiny in hand. True, access to education has progressed considerably in recent years, notably to the benefit of women who, nonetheless, still represent two-thirds of illiterate adults. But the strides made conceal widening disparities, with some countries still suffering from a combination of backwardness and inequality. This means that we must step up our efforts. This book, issued in honor of the President of the General Conference of UNESCO, Michael Abiola Omolewa, who has devoted his life to the cause of education, is a major contribution to helping women and men of goodwill, who must more than ever fight to secure for the have-nots of this world the right to education.

WIDENING ACCESS TO EDUCATION AS SOCIAL JUSTICE by Akpovire Oduaran( )

Teaching across the curriculum : research-based evidence and principles for professionals by Akpovire Oduaran( )

4 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The COVID-19 pandemic posed a serious challenge to teaching across the educational system. Many young people in Africa now perceive education as fraudulent and not useful in providing employment and sustaining their lives. Thus, it becomes sacrosanct for teachers to adjust their methods of teaching in line with the reality of our time. This book will serve to help teachers and lecturers to be dynamic, efficient and effective in their chosen profession. It was written by scholars with many years of teaching and researching on professional development in different specialties in Africa, and has

An African perspective on development : learning to live and living to learn in the 21st century by Akpovire Oduaran( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the distinguished South African academic Akpovire Oduaran examines the challenges presented by the changing landscape of socio-economic transformations and strategic learning in the twenty-first century, especially in the context of Anglophone Africa. UNESCO has indicated that as at September, 2009, the world is still home to 776 million adults - one in every - who could not read, write, or compute to an appreciable level of understanding. The majority of these people, mostly adults, live in the so-called developing world. Added to the teeming millions of illiterate youths, this is a major crisis. The scenario presents even greater concerns for scholars in Africa; years after the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Education for All (EFA) program were put in place as the major foci of development in Africa, the continent is still grappling with many difficult problems. Nearly three-quarters of the world's poorest people live in Sub-Saharan Africa. The number of people living on less than one US dollar was 389 million in 2013. Africa's share of world poverty is said to have risen from 19% in 1990 to 31% by 2004, and was still rising. The health challenges presented by HIV and AIDS present another huge need for African leaders to sit up and confront the limiting factors that have confronted their people for so long. These challenges obviously require everyone to learn to live and live to learn on a continuous basis

Fundamentals of leadership and training for development in Africa by Mamolahluwa Mokoena( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People, communities, organisations and nations fail largely due to lack of leadership, or the inadequate training therein. There is need, therefore, to address in a systematic manner, what one needs to understand and do at any time in order to lead successfully and effectively. For Africa, this is crucial: the continent has for long suffered from leadership failure, and if a book exists to train leaders of the future, especially within the professional development sector as this one does, the future will be in good hands. Africa's dreams have been dashed too often, and life cannot just continue on that path. With a book like this one, which articulates the ideas informed by the quest for leadership, teaching potential leaders what to do and how to do it as an antidote to failure in leadership positions must really be a most valuable contribution to the development of Africa. Africa's precious resources and people can be better managed to bring to fruition the better individuals, communities and nations she has yearned for over the years.--

The Computer Revolution and Adult Education. Growth Prospects in Africa by Akpovire Oduaran( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most African countries are presently overburdened by their debts, declining economies, and quality of living as well as abiding struggles for the restoration of democracy. However, they have noted the global revolution in the development and application of computers. Most Africans believe that computers and intensive and relevant education for all provide opportunities for speeding up the development process. Although most education in African nations is directed at youths, computers could be applied to many aspects of African adult education, such as retaining students, providing information systems, retraining, computer literacy, distance education, and computer conferencing. Conversely, several problems could develop in the use of computers in adult education, such as computer-related crimes, policy setbacks, the presence of nontechnical administrators, an inadequate supply of personnel, an inadequate infrastructure, costs, technical issues, and suspicion of computers. Surmounting such problems requires concerted international cooperation in fostering the use of computers in Africa, training adults in computer use, and promoting adult education research.
