The Partnership for Enhanced and Blended Learning (PEBL) aims to address the critical academic staff shortages many east African universities are currently facing. It enables universities to share scarce teaching resources through quality assured, credit-bearing degree courses delivered through blended learning.

By participating in PEBL, east African universities are able to expand the range of courses offered to students enrolled on taught undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, and ease the teaching burden placed on their staff.

The PEBL project also grows the educational development capacity of its partner universities by building expertise in effective blended learning techniques.

Through this innovative approach, PEBL is enhancing regional collaboration, teaching quality, and student outcomes - helping to ensure that students graduate from east African universities with the relevant skills and knowledge needed for the workplace in a dynamic and changing economic climate.
