Call for Papers for the 2020 State of Higher Education Report in Zambia
The Higher Education Authority (HEA) is calling for submissions of academic papers for its the 2020 State of Higher Education Report in Zambia by no later than 30th April, 2021.
The Authority is mandated by the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013 to publish, on an annual basis, the State of Higher Education Report. Thus, on the heels of the successful publication and launch of its inaugural report, The State Higher Education in Zambia 2019: 5 Decades of University Education, HEA is calling for submission of papers under the theme, “Teaching and Learning in the New Normal.”
2020 saw the world as we know it change due to the global pandemic of the Coronavirus SARS-CoV2 or COVID-19. This, therefore, brought significant challenges in the higher education sector of how how to continue teaching and learning whilst grappling with COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
Thus, to address this challenge, most Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) turned to distance education and online learning as a means to achieving their education goals. For most HEIs, this signified an important shift in education, from campus based and face-to-face learning to electronic based teaching and learning.
Therefore, the theme, “Teaching and Learning in the New Normal”, of the 2020 State of Higher Education Report will seek to, amongst other reasons, learn from HEIs how the institutions deployed distance education and online learning. Further, the Report will seek to learn from the experiences of lectures, students and education administrators in the implementation of distance education and online learning.
