There are many tools that you can use to improve your teaching. Contact the OutreachCenter and find out when they will be holding their next workshop for teachers. Their workshops cover issues such as African diversity, how to teach about Africa, ways of integrating Africa into the curricula, how to evaluate materials on Africa, recommendation of appropriate audio visual materials and special topics.
