Professional Development

The MERLOT Africa Network (MAN) recognizes that quality education and the professional development of faculty must be immersed within the discipline communities and institutional culture and be governed by the faculty themselves.

MAN is building on the efforts of MERLOT to empower local campus leaders within disciplines to develop communities of faculty who will discover, review, organize and disseminate exemplary practices for teaching and learning with technology.
