If you want to reproduce or adapt the teaching methods of the Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA), this website is for you.
Written documentation can describe the content and curriculum of training. But teaching, particularly using participatory methods, is an interactive process. With this in mind, we produced the videos (below) to demonstrate CARTA’s pedagogy in action.
CARTA encourages past and current Fellows, their home institutions and other universities to use and share the principles and practice of these teaching and learning methods. Note that these videos are not in themselves teaching tools. Rather, they are to support teachers’ preparation and to guide their teaching.
To use or adapt CARTA’s participatory methods, you can draw on:
- Lesson plans and support materials for each of the Joint Advanced Seminars (JASes)
- An overview video that describes CARTA’s approach
- Videos that illustrate specific activities and methods in action
The video for each session shows how CARTA facilitators work together to achieve seminar outcomes. They demonstrate teaching methods that you can go on to replicate or adapt. We present the videos according to the Joint Advanced Seminar (JAS) in which CARTA uses that particular approach.
