We quickly navigate the pristine BIUST campus which is a site to behold. The stunningly new location is truly state of the art and is bristling with brand new chemistry and computer lab facilities as well as intimate teaching and presentation facilities. Equally, the entire university is abuzz with eager students rushing to classes as we setup our STM assessment in one of the second floor lecture halls.
The initial engagement with any new STM partner is the personalised rubric based assessment. This Eiffelcorp facilitated Q&A session is designed to illicit from those present the development of a current state or picture of the organisations capabilities and highlights strengths, weaknesses and opportunities across an array of relevant criteria like eLearning strategy, technical and support services, teaching & learning alignment as well as quality assurance and content provision among others.
The session is lively and there is much debate and comment from the responsive BIUST audience. By the close we have a strong sense of the areas of eLearning that need to be addressed as well as Eifflecorps commitment to developing a tailored set of facilitated service based improvements that will ensure BIUST reach the highest possible eLearning potential within one to three years.
After some warm goodbyes we depart the campus gates with a smile and feeling that we have already had a positive impact with this initial interaction. Hopefully it won’t be long before we are back at BIUST again delivering those improvements together with them and gathering eLearning success stores to showcase their meteoric growth.
Gunning into second gear and barrelling up to the A1 turn off back to Gaborone we hit the open road again and head off into the big orange and yellow Botswana sunset. No Xbox game was ever this good!
