Welcome to DETA 2023 Conference

Theme: A paradigm shift towards innovative, resilient and transformative teacher education

Venue: Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda

Date: 24 - 27 July 2023

The Distance Education and Teachers' Training in Africa (DETA) Conference is an Africa-specific biennial conference initiated by the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 2005. The conference was borne out of the necessity to create a unique platform for all faculties of education to share knowledge and deliberate on educational issues as they affect Africa. DETA’s major objectives are to contribute to the debate on teacher training in Africa and to build capacity for the delivery of teacher training programmes in Africa.
