Christophe Nteziryayo, the Director of Information and Communication Technology at University of Rwanda-College of Business and Economics (UR-CBE) was awarded the Best Individual Achievement Award in the recently concluded African Leadership in ICT (ALICT) course.
African Leadership in ICT (ALICT) is an African Union Commission initiative, supported by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and implemented by GESCI (Founded by the UN ICT Task Force). ALICT was implemented across thirteen African countries: Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Mauritius, Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ghana.
In Rwanda, there were 30 participants (out of 109 who applied for the course) who took part in the 7 month professional blended learning course (online and face- to- face) designed and delivered by GESCI (Global e-Schools and Communities’ Initiative). The course was tailored specifically to the professional development needs of Africa’s future architects of the Knowledge Society in the fields of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), and ICT policy making and planning.
