Education in Zimbabwe

The Britain Zimbabwe Society/Oxford African Studies Centre annual Research Day this year is on the topic of Education in Zimbabwe.

It will be held at St Antony's College, Oxford on 18th June 2011.

The Research Day is an annual event that focuses on academic research, but includes other practitioners to provide a wider context for the academic papers. It gives priority to researchers from Zimbabwe and to doctoral students in need of a supportive, informed environment in which to introduce their work. Academics and non-academics are equally welcome. There is a long lunch-hour to allow plenty of time for networking, and the day will be preceded this year by a book launch on the Friday evening.

The panels will cover:
- education in schools;
- the historical and contemporary role of universities;
- global links in the provision and accreditation of education and skills training; and
- the growing role of the military in providing education and training.

Invited speakers include Dr Teresa Barnes, Assoc Professor History Dept, UIUC; Dr Gerald Mazarire, Head of History at University of Zimbawe; Dr Elaosi Vhurumuku, lecturer in Science and Science Teaching at Wits University; and Mrs Nomathemba Neseni-Nyoni, Executive Director of the Institute of Water and Sanitation, ZW.
