Curriculum convertibility for remote learning in Ghana
Curriculum Development, Mobility, Research, Teacher Training
The research focuses on home economics education at the upper secondary school level, specifically how the curriculum can be converted to remote and online training situations, where face-to-face learning is not possible and/or the internet connection is not reliable. A document analysis of the subject matter and teaching strategies was carried out to identify aspects that need conversion, can be delivered remotely and need to be substituted. Primary data was collected through focus group discussions involving teachers and students. Findings will be included into the current curriculum.
