 The African Science Academy (ASA) has organised a one-day hands-on capacity building for 70 Senior High School Mathematics teachers in the Upper East Region. 

The teachers, drawn from all secondary schools in the region, were trained on how to build, share, discuss and widen the knowledge of students in the field of Maths as well as the practical methods of teaching.

Speaking to the media during the training, the Executive Director of the African Gifted Foundation, a mother unit of ASA, Miss Yasamean Al-jbourg indicated that the initiative was in its eighth edition since its inception in 2017. 

She added that due to the success stories chalked over the years ASA will expect to cover the whole country. 

“ASA Math Masterclass has been held across several regions in the country, making an impact in the educational lives of over 550 teachers and more than 45000 students across the country. The programme has been held in over 8 regions,  but now targeting the whole country. ASA hopes to positively impact the academic lives of high school students and become the leading name in STEM education for girls in Ghana.”

She noted, “this year’s edition features an equal representation of male and female mathematics teachers in the region. The maths masterclass would equip and steer the teachers through effective teaching techniques on how to teach some of the challenging maths concepts using technology and direct instruction.”

The Upper East Regional Training Officer of the Ghana Education Service, Miss Mollydean Zong-Buntuya however called on the teachers to use the initiative as a stepping stone to improve their teaching methods of Mathematics. 

“I expect that at the end of the training teachers will be more equipped on how to teach students on the subject.” 

The founder of the Ghana Society for Education Technology (GSET), Miracule Daniel Gavor also encouraged Ghanaian teachers to use initiatives like this to improve their teaching skills. 

GSET is a nonprofit energetic network for Ghanaian educators who have faith in the intensity of learning new skills in the sector. 

The African Gifted Foundation with support from Tullow Oil and in collaboration with the Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service will continue to improve and provide girls across Africa with a profound interest in Maths and Science programs the opportunity in furtherance of its devotion to advancing STEM education in Ghana.
