Higher Diploma Program
Higher Diploma Program (HDP)
The development of HDP starts from the study into the quality and effectiveness of teacher education in Ethiopia in 2000 which has justified the need for such a programme . Since its inception, the programme continually develops in line with government policies and strategies. Presently the Education Sector Development Program IV (ESDP IV) and the Second Growth and Transformation Plan have informed the direction. The significant expansion in tertiary education has resulted in the need for more trained teachers, to guarantee the quality and to achieve the sector goals.
Those who educate higher education students must themselves be of high quality, be highly competent and be educated for the specifics of their role to produce better teachers and to improve the learning of all students in Ethiopia. The programme provides graduates with support for their development as effective and reflective practitioners with enhanced professional status.
Cognizant with this fact, HDP is being delivered in UoG since 2003 E.C. based on the national standard. The programme consists of the following five modules being delivered for one year.
Module 1: The Reflective Teacher
Module 2: Managing Learning
Module 3: Managing Learning Project
Module 4: Action Research
Module 5: School/Organisation Placement
