The Mathematical Sciences cluster hosted a general lecture on curriculum transformation with Prof Overtoun Jenda, Auburm University, USA, as guest speaker. It took place in the Plant Sciences Auditorium on 20 March 2017, and the title of the lecture was Towards STEM Curriculum Transformation in African Universities.
Continual STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) curricula development is needed to deliver graduates capable of relating to local societal and industrial needs as well as skills to effectively compete in the global scientific community. The lecture addressed the challenging balance between curriculum transformation needs while maintaining curriculum standards and rigor.
