In late April the Department of Information Systems at the University of Cape Town (UCT) met two important project objectives when Mr. Gwamaka Mwalemba travelled to Ethiopia to facilitate a Train the Trainer in “ES Fundamentals with SAP” lecturer training course at the University of Addis Ababa (AAU).
The course was attended by mostly senior academics from various disciplines such as Computer Science, Information Science, Economics, Management as well as Accounting and Finance. While most of the participants had little previous experience working with or teaching Enterprise Systems (ES), the interest – as well as level of engagement and discussion before and during the course – was “phenomenal” according to Gwamaka.
The culmination of this lecturer training achieved two important milestones for the ESEFA project, the first being that AAU is the 10th ESEFA partner university in the 10th Sub-Saharan country to join the ESEFA programme and the second is that the ESEFA Centre at UCT has now succeeded in qualifying 80 lecturers to teach ES Fundamentals with SAP to students across the African continent.
