Abstract

In an effort to address migration of talent from sub-Saharan Africa, a number of higher education institutions are attempting to strengthen or develop graduate programs in several areas. These institutions see the potential for emerging digital technologies to provide new and exciting opportunities for collaboration with Western institutions. Examples of these institutions include University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and Iowa State University, which collaborated on a needs assessment for collaborative action to build faculty capacity through the development of shared Internet-based courses. This article describes this initiative. (Contains a list of 3 resources.)
