Enriching Tomorrow: eLearning Africa 2015 Returns to Ethiopia


Enriching Tomorrow: eLearning Africa 2015 Returns to Ethiopia

Rebecca Stromeyer, CEO of ICWE GmbH and Founder of eLearning Africa, joined Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister H.E. Dr Debretsion Gebremichael, Minister of Communication and Information Technology of Ethiopia, on last Wednesday to announce that the annual eLearning Africa conference will return to Ethiopia, the country of its inauguration, for its tenth anniversary edition.

The conference, which is the largest international event in Africa on ICT for education, training and development, will be held in Addis Ababa from May 20th – 22nd, under the patronage of the Ethiopian Government.

Speaking of Ethiopia’s decision to host the event, H.E. Dr Debretsion Gebremichael said, “My government is pleased to host eLearning Africa as this is a conference returning to Ethiopia, where my government joined arms with ICWE in conceiving and launching the first eLearning Africa platform on African soil. eLearning Africa 2015 will create an opportunity to reflect on the 10 year  journey traversed by eLearning Africa since its first conference in Addis Ababa. Furthermore, Ethiopia, as the seat of the African Union, welcomes conferences that bring together African policy makers and experts once more back to their home.”

Rebecca Stromeyer said: “During its ten-year history, the conference has led to an explosion of new ideas, new projects, new agreements and new partnerships. It has brought the leading experts on learning, development and technology to take part in our discussions and it has shown the world the ambition and wisdom of Africa.  It has created a new understanding of what Africans can achieve and a belief that, working together, sharing our knowledge, making the most of the great opportunity that education and technology offer us, we will change the world.

I am delighted to be able to tell you that, after 10 years ‘on the road’ around Africa – in Kenya, Ghana, Zambia, Tanzania, Senegal, Benin, Namibia and Uganda, we are returning to Ethiopia.”

Ms Stromeyer also launched an international ‘Call for Proposals’ for the conference, which offers an opportunity to anyone working in education, development and technology to showcase their outstanding projects and sustainable initiatives. eLearning Africa invites potential speakers from across the Continent and the world to submit their ideas, innovations and research, under the main theme of “Enriching Tomorrow”.

eLearning Africa 2015 is expected to address topics including innovative funding strategies, citizen empowerment, ICT4E in critical industries and open knowledge, as well as to highlight the very best of African innovation. The following sub-themes will be addressed:

  • Investing in skills
  • Post-2015: Developing and Implementing Policy
  • The Age of Openness
  • Local Cultures, Diversity and ICT
  • Tomorrow‘s ICT
  • Developing ICT Competence

The annual eLearning Africa conference is the largest gathering of eLearning and ICT supported education and training professionals in Africa, making it the most important networking venue for practitioners, managers, advisers, businesses and governments from Africa and all over the world. Every year, it brings together around 1,500 policy-makers, leading experts, practitioners, teachers and innovators from around 70 countries.

eLearning Africa 2015, a key platform for discussion about the future of Africa, will take place at the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from the 20th – 22nd May. For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit www.elearning-africa.com.
