LATINA Uganda, 2013

Makerere University Library will be conducting the second LATINA course in Africa in May and June 2013.

The course starts with three online lectures given by the LATINA Lab in Oslo on May 8, May 15 and May 22, combined with introductory readings and assignments. The on-site training takes place at Makerere University Library from 17th -28 June, 2013 in the New Building Extension.

The course is a mix of presentations, discussions and hands-on work with computers and audio-visual equipment. A high level of student activity and commitment is required. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops.

LATINA stands for Learning and Teaching in a Digital World. The program was developed by the LATINA Lab at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Science (HiOA) in Norway. The Lab develops, demonstrates and provides intensive training in teaching and learning methods that are based on the current state of-the-art and emerging trends in user-oriented ICT. The present course will be conducted by Makerere staff that have participated in previous LATINA courses as students (in Oslo 2009, 2010) and as trainers (in Kampala 2012).

The application form should be accompanied with a motivation statement. Please note that strong individual motivation, documented by a personal statement of interest, could replace institutional backing. Participants are encouraged to study information about the course on the web before applying.  The two weeks’ training is practice oriented and quite intensive.

Participants are advised to apply for sponsorship from their institutions to cover: Registration fee: $150 for Ugandans and $300 for non-Ugandans, Transport to and from Makerere University, Accommodation and Supper. Application deadline is 30th March, 2013. Please send the application form, and supporting documents by e-mail to and copy to or to:
