Philip R. Christensen Dr. Philip R. Christensen is Director of the South Africa office of the Academy for Educational Development. An instructional systems specialist by training, he has spent much of his career exploring the potential of technology to improve educational quality. His most recent contributions to this field involved Cyberschool Africa, an innovative Web-based revision service for disadvantaged South African high school students. He has lived and worked in Africa since 1980, managing four multi-million rand, donor-funded educational development projects elsewhere on the continent prior to settling permanently in South Africa in 1996. During this time he directed schemes to develop radio lessons to teach primary English in Kenya (a system now being used by more than 500,000 South African children), help reform curriculum and teacher-training in Lesotho, and implement innovations such as continuous assessment, outcomes-based education and training for school heads in Swaziland and Namibia. Previously he worked in Ontario as the instructional systems designer for a vocational-technical tertiary institution, managed a modularisation project at the University of Massachusetts, and designed educational programmes for a Chicago-area NGO. He has lectured part-time at two universities and consulted extensively around the world with schools, universities, civil society organisations, private-sector companies, governments and donor agencies. Dr. Christensen holds a Bachelor's degree in Social Psychology from Harvard University and a Doctorate in Education from the University of Massachusetts.
