EER is not well represented in Africa and although there is a growing interest to support African countries, Africa lacks representation in the global EER community. Many African Universities operate with limited resources and unique restrictions which leads to various innovative educational projects but they remain unpublished. This short workshop will act as a community building engagement as we move towards a sustainable EER network in Africa and to increase African representation globally in this field and showcase the contribution of Africa to EER. It will be informally organised to give scholars and practitioners the opportunity to connect, share experiences and their interests or potential links to EER.
Target Audience: Even though the focus is on African countries and building an EER community, anyone who has an interest in networking and collaborating is more than welcome.
