Title Diaspora Connect: A Pathway for African Academics living abroad to contribute to the development of Africa.By AAU TV Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet AAU TV Media type Television Duration/Length/Size 30 mins Country/Territory Ghana Date 2/03/22 Description Diaspora Connect: A Pathway for African Academics living abroad to contribute to the development of Africa.
I was invited by AAU TV to take part in a TV interview as part of a program dubbed Diaspora Connect, dedicated to showcasing the impacts of the academics in the diaspora to their home countries in Africa. As part of this engagement, they are producing a documentary on what impact an academic in the Diaspora has made at the Accra Institute of Technology (AIT). It was really exciting the share my thoughts on the show.
Indeed, African academics in the diaspora are looking for ways to connect with colleagues in Africa, to give back to the African community and this could be in the form of:
Sharing ideas and resources
Collaborating on research project
Submitting joint proposal for African research grants
External examinership activities for undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral programmes.
Assist with course development.
We are looking for possible area of collaboration for mutual benefits.
Partnership with our UK Universities
Attract students to Europe with possible scholarship
Be consultants for research Centres and Institutes
Share expertise and experience
Funding should not be a barrier for this collaboration.
