Abstract

Detailed contextual information on technology innovation initiatives in universities is rare, and especially so in Africa where the impact may be particularly high. With the support of the CDC, the Rwandan Ministry of Health and the University of Rwanda (UR) partnered with Tulane University to enhance learning and teaching at the UR College of Medicine and Health Sciences (CMHS) under the Human Resources for Health Program. We give an overview of the integrated, collaborative program of eResource development, systems design, and blended faculty development, highlighting both successes--such as the active and content-rich learning management system--as well as cases of rational resistance. Lessons are presented on course design, massive concurrent online assessment, cloud hosting strategies, and the coordination of international faculty development and technical support teams. We describe next steps to proliferate contextually relevant pedagogy at CMHS.
