There is growing evidence that appropriate use of technology may improve teaching and learning. Effective use of technology also helps the increasing number of life-long learners gain access to formal qualifications thus equipping learners as workers and citizens in an information society.
Consequently, in 2013 EUAAB acquired the distance learning platform DistanceDirect. EUAAB is using the most up-to-date technologies and state-of-the-art learning design theory for the learners.
An integral part of our approach to the learning design of our centres are the institutional commitment to help our students develop higher-order skills of critical analysis, reflection, and problem-solving. We also emphasize supporting learners in building knowledge collaboratively and engaging in social learning.
DistanceDirect is used to conduct many online training by our centres and to conduct summative examinations where appropriate.
