  26. 27. CONTEXT: FACULTY CAPACITY <ul><li>A key barrier is the lack of instructor capacity to teach basic and clinical sciences. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Ghana medical schools can only admit 30% of qualified applicants. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This is complicated by the duplication of effort in developing learning materials. </li></ul>

  29. 30. WHY OER? When you look in textbooks it’s difficult to find African cases. The cases may be pretty similar but sometimes it can be confusing when you see something that you see on a white skin so nicely and very easy to pick up, but on the dark skin it has a different manifestation that may be difficult to see. Sometimes it is difficult for the students to appreciate when they see a clinical case that involves an African. I think that [locally developed] OER will go a long way in helping the students appreciate the cases that we see in our part of the world. -Richard Phillips, lecturer, Department of Internal Medicine, KNUST Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
  30. 31. WHAT IS “THE NETWORK”? <ul><li>The mission of the African Health OER Network is to advance health education in Africa by using open educational resources (OER) developed by and targeted toward Africans in order to share knowledge, address curriculum gaps, and support communities around health education. </li></ul>
