Department of Educational Technology

Dr. T. Chikerema – Department Chairperson

The proliferation of Technology in the education sector has broken boundaries by facilitating education and training in and beyond the confines of the physical classroom and allowing it to be portable. The disparities in ICT investments, the varying technology infrastructural levels, and the digital gap between the teachers’ and learners, however, strengthen the inequality of pedagogical practices amongst institutions, companies, and schools.

To this effect, the department is tasked to equip trainee teacher educators with appropriate skills necessary to make effective use of technology available to them  in designing, developing, planning and evaluating e-Learning activities in their teaching. The products of the department are expected to be equipped with sound pedagogical and technological capacities to make appropriate choices of technological tools necessary for the achievement of pedagogical goals.
