Conception, reflexion around issues linked to the usage of new technologies in education for business and schools
William V.S. Tubman University
January 2011 - June 2012
* I taught for three semesters.
The first semester I taught an introductory course to computer science. Then during the following semester, I shifted my focus towards a more theoretical domain of algebra, whilst continuing to supervise two computer courses: An introductory course and a more advanced course which focused on the usage of MS Office (Excel, PowerPoint, Word). Finally, for the last semester I concentrated on teaching “Analytical geometry and trigonometry”.
- This was all done in the challenging context of a post-war developing country. Here, we lack many resources and infrastructural capacities: From the lack of chalk to unreliable electrical supplies. Nonetheless, we continue to make fast progress which I find very exciting.

- The conference had a particularly high attendance rate. It was a success. As a result, 6 years later, in 2010 I was able to benefit from WIFI on a remote Liberian university campus.
* I helped translat scientifics articles to be published in the UNESCO science journal, from English to French.
My principal duty during my internship was to evaluate educational projects proposal that we received from educational institutions from all over the world. The selected projects were given financial help, whilst the others were provided with critical and helpful advice upon how to improve their projects.
