Training teachers for secondary mathematics and science: the challenge facing the University of Malawi

Nampota, Dorothy Cynthia

Abstract:
This paper focuses on the development of human capacity in the science, mathematics and technology (SMT) which has been on the agenda of most developing countries.  The author examines the current situation regarding the adequacy of SMT teacher provision for secondary education.  It discusses the challenges facing secondary teacher training institutions in producing the desirable quantity and quality of SMT teachers for the country.  The analysis is based on the University of Malawi which hosts the oldest and main faculty of Education.  Nampota shows why a teacher is central in the teaching and learning environment and subsequently, in human capital development.
