IMPDET Hub at the College of Business Education, Tanzania

Introduction

IMPDET Hub at CBE is a collaborative research capacity-building activity between the College of Business Education (CBE), Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and the Technologies for Learning and Development research group at UEF. Faculty members of CBE pursue doctoral studies in the IMPDET programme, while receiving support from the local supervisors at CBE.

The main aspects of CBE doctoral candidates’ research projects are to utilize social science research methods for understanding contextually relevant challenges and to address those challenges by using a combination of action research, participatory design research, living labs methodology, and software engineering. The currently hosted research projects are at the intersection between social science research, and computing.
