J.Chilonge
Director Directorate of Distance Education

Overview

The Directorate of Distance Education at Chalimbana University strives to provide and increase access to higher education opportunities that enable students to develop and demonstrate adequate knowledge and skills necessary for their professional teaching career. The Directorate is mandated to provide an alternative mode of education delivery, necessitated by the need to provide opportunities to those who could not attend full time education because of either family or employment challenges. Being a public university, Chalimbana is obliged to support government policies through the provision of distance education programmes. To achieve this role, the Directorate works with teaching schools to provide appropriate learner support services to its students, and also continues to use new technology to provide flexible and more open learning environments.
