PEBL East Africa convened 23 universities and technical partners based in the UK and Canada under a unique partnership designed to rapidly scale up capacity for blended learning design and delivery.

The project supported participating universities to develop, deliver, and share blended content - and built a solid base of expertise amongst academic staff to support the successful and sustainable implementation of the blended learning model.

PEBL East Africa is supported by UK FCDO's SPHEIR programme.

I am personally grateful for participating in this project. I have benefited in many ways – for instance, I am now more knowledgeable on blended learning, I can design high quality pedagogical approaches, and I am better able to identify students’ and staff roles in blended learning."
