There is a growing number of universities in francophone Africa that are moving away from traditions and using English as a language of instruction. Even more important, many of these best-in-class universities are focused on a curriculum and an educational experience that develops students who are not just bilingual but well-trained to be innovators and leaders. We will spotlight these universities and hear about how they are educating during a pandemic and working within the educational ecosystem to support other institutions during this difficult time.
