Collaboration between universities and hospitals in Leicester and Gondar, Ethiopia, to launch on Wednesday 11 December

The significant academic medical relationship between the Universities of Leicester and Gondar has now been strengthened further through the development of a website, called Leicester Gondar CTP, which will maximize the bond between the institutions by offering expert medical teaching in an easy-to-use format.

The website has been developed by staff in Leicestershire who have formed the Leicester-Gondar Collaborative Teaching Project to encourage collaborative teaching and working between the cities of Leicester and Gondar.

Terese Bird (pictured) from the University's Institute of Learning Innovation provided all of the podcast technical support for the project. In 2010 she was awarded the Highly Commended in the Association for Learning Technology Learning Technologist of the Year Individual Award.

The website will be officially launched at the Royal College of Physicians Meeting on Wednesday 11 December 2013 at the University of Leicester’s Stamford Court Conference venue.
