Mr. Emmanuel Kweyu will be one of the panelists in the upcoming online debate on “Making Higher Education Work for Africa”. The debate is organized by SciDev.Net, an organization that focuses on engaging primarily with development professionals, policymakers, researchers, the media and the informed public.

Higher education is taking a more prominent place in debates over Africa’s future. But efforts to boost advanced university degrees have been fraught with difficulties. How should graduate training change so it better aligns with development needs and employment opportunities?

The debate will be an in-depth analysis including opinions, facts and figures, and key resources. It features views by Goolam Mohamedbhai, former secretary-general of the Association of African Universities; Patrício V. Langa, from the Eduardo Mondlane University in Mozambique and Gerald Wangenge-Ouma from the University of Pretoria in South Africa; and Martin Bosompem, from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana and Emmanuel Kweyu from @iLabAfrica-Strathmore University.

It includes interviews with faculty and technology experts from East Africa as well as Lidia Brito, director of science policy and capacity building at UNESCO.
