IMPDET hubs in Tanzania and Uganda

IMPDET hubs in Tanzania and Uganda are collaborative research capacity-building activities between the Technologies for Learning and Development research group and the College of Business Education (CBE), Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, and the Makerere University Business School (MUBS) in Uganda. The main purpose of the hubs is to enable faculty members of CBE and MUBS to pursue doctoral studies in IMPDET, while receiving support from the local supervisors.

The main aspects of CBE and MUBS doctoral candidates’ research projects are to utilize pluralistic research methods for understanding contextually relevant challenges and to address those challenges by using design science research/action research, participatory design, living labs methodology, and software design/engineering.
