African higher education institutions seriously structurally under-funded for the core function they are expected to discharge. Therefore, corresponding paucity of institutional and individual capacity to teach in many domains of higher education. Too few learning resources for learners and lecturers in African universities, and many of those available are too expensive to be purchased by universities or students.

  • Research, Publications and Service. Teaching is implicit, but rarely fore-grounded in terms of policy. A university is expected to offer a broad domain of expertise: the reality is that most HEI’s specialise in / are known for particular strengths; Whereas faculty with the skills to teach in a broad spectrum of subjects may exist, the time they have to re-visit and modify curriculum on a regular and systematic basis is constrained.
