Market and Technology Led Curriculum Enhancement at Agricultural Education Institutions in Africa and South Asia
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Fund partnerships between selected US and overseas universities to support the transformation of existing undergraduate curriculum in Africa and S. Asia through 1) the development of a series of curricular modules to address the business, market and supply chain information needs of 21st century smallholders, 2) foster the introduction and expansion of experiential learning as part of the educational experience of undergraduate students, and 3) train master trainers to assist in the deployment of these new curricular features.
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 7: Preparing Universities for the New Agriculture. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
