The psychology of adult learning in Africa by T. O Fasokun( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychology as an applied discipline can help adult educators be more effective in their work. With this in mind, this publication analyzes the cultural factors that influence the characteristics, behavior and thinking of adult learners in Africa. The chapters provide an introduction to the psychology of adult learning and address such subjects as: lifelong learning; human motivation and participation; and the various learning styles. It also considers ways to facilitate adult learning and provide learners with the necessary guidance and counselling to support them.--Publisher's description

Adult literacy programs in Uganda by Anthony Okech( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to compare, and contrast the resource requirements, and effectiveness of adult literacy programs in Uganda, assess its implementation, and recommend future policy for the development of adult literacy education. The report presents the research, and evaluation background, providing analyses of effectiveness in terms of both the attainment, and retention of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills, including practical knowledge, and attitude changes - particularly, knowledge about HIV/AIDS prevention, and care. It explores the factors affecting the performance of adult education, the costs of activities, and the extent of local commitment under the current socioeconomic conditions. The context of literacy programs in Uganda, and the current state of both government, and nongovernmental organizations' programs, are described, emphasizing on outcomes, and cost-effectiveness, rather than process, or methodology. Conclusions suggest that while the programs are helping the government in redressing the imbalance of educational opportunities, namely between men and women, these programs are nonetheless in danger of missing their primary target, i.e., the people who have had no schooling. Furthermore, the average level of attainment is very limited, revealing the quality of implementation is the major explanation for the variations in learners' attainments. Recommendations suggest consistency in policy, to ensure reconciliation between decentralization, and the priority for universal literacy

Adult Literacy Programs in Ug anda. Africa Region Human Development Series by Anthony Okech( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report evaluates the outcomes and cost effectiveness of adult literacy programs in Ugandan villages and compares government programs with those provided by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Part 1 describes evaluation objectives, government and ngo literacy programs and the rural socioeconomic context, and evaluation design. About 100 program graduates and control samples were tested and interviewed in each of eight districts. Instructors and village leaders were interviewed, and focus groups were conducted. Part 2 examines learner characteristics, socioeconomic indicators, access to urban areas, participation in literacy programs, attitudes, and experiences in class; literacy centers and availability of materials; instructor characteristics, training, and attitudes; and supervision quality. Parts 3-4 present program outcomes, conclusions, and recommendations. The main conclusions are: (1) since most participants are women, the programs are helping to redress the gender imbalance in educational opportunities; (2) the programs may be missing their primary clients--people with no schooling; (3) decentralization may be undermining incentives and accountability at the local level; (4) most participants had attained levels of reading, writing, and numeracy higher than grade 4, but average attainment was very limited; (5) learner attainments varied with quality of implementation; (6) graduates increased their participation in community governance, improved their health practices, and established successful income-generating activities; (7) similar outcomes were found for government and ngo programs; (8) literacy materials varied in quality and availability; (9) instructors in government programs had little schooling and training, and supervision was dismal in most places; and (10) unit costs were about $4.50 per year (U.S. dollars) but would rise to about $13.00 per year if steps were taken to ensure sustainability. A final chapter by John Oxenham discusses wider implications for the adult education profession. (Contains 53 references and 59 data tables.) (Sv)

Distance education and a realistic teacher education pedagogy in Uganda : impact of an ICT-supported learning environment by Gudula Naiga Basaza( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ICT is hardly used in Uganda to develop distance education and this despite political goodwill, the positive experiences reflected in some of the showcases and the limited but available infrastructure. Key enabling factors have been identified:government commitment, planning, availability of resources, technology, private sector partnership and commitment. The major challenges:lack of adequate resources, standards, a negative attitude and the lack of an ICT policy to guide implementations. A central element in this research was an RTEP oriented learning approach to counter the technical rationality that is observed in teacher education. The ICT-based learning environment was to promote the quality of education. The ICT-based environment was also considered to be helpful to meet the growing need for teacher education in Uganda and to promote more flexible access to teacher education. Student teachers studied in an RTEP-oriented and ICT- based learning environment. The impact on the level of student interaction and the level of cognitive processing metacognitive variables, the student teacher perceptions, instruction and flexibility of
