Embracing Knowledge and Collaboration: Highlights from the Data Science Summer School and Workshop

DSA seminar

We are honoured to share the highlights of the highly anticipated Data Science Africa (DSA) Summer School and Workshop recently held in Kigali. This remarkable event, hosted by the University of Rwanda, brought together a diverse group of graduate students, researchers, and professionals working with vast amounts of data or unique datasets. The summer school and workshop provided a unique platform for attendees to expand their expertise in machine learning and data science while fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing.

The event kicked off with an inspiring introduction from Prof Charles Ruranga, the senior chair of the DSA, who set the tone for the days ahead. Participants gained valuable insights into the DSA and the event program, allowing them to plan their schedules accordingly. Dr Didas Kayihura Muganga, the A.g Vice Chancellor of the University of Rwanda, extended a warm welcome and shared encouraging remarks, setting the stage for a fruitful and engaging experience.

Attendees had the opportunity to choose between two tracks based on their interests: Data Science with R programming and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning with Python programming. The Python programming track attracted participants already well-versed in AI and ML, who dove into sessions covering a wide range of topics. Notable sessions included Natural Language Programming, conducted by Dr Andrew Kipkebut from Kabarak University, Kenya, and Computer Vision and Object Detection, led by Dr Andrew Katumba from Makerere University AI lab.

School of nursing

Training of Nurses at the Bachelor’s level at King Ceasor University is aimed at improving the health status of the communities and contributing to addressing the current changes in health care. 

The School of Nursing is focused on training nurses who have enthusiasm and motivation in improving the health care system that builds a healthy population. The strategy is to prepare nurses with the required competencies to address the population’s needs through the placement of students in the clinical area and communities.   The classroom knowledge is applied in the clinical setting in order to demonstrate the required skills and competencies. The teams of mentors are built in the clinical area to conduct the clinical training of the student, supported by School of Nursing lecturers. The lecturers get involved in conducting clinical procedures together with the students to ensure that they achieve the set objectives and get the required skills and competencies. The lecturers conduct post-clinical conferences to discuss what transpired during the day’s work, share achievements and challenges, get solutions to the identified challenges, and plan for the next day’s work. At the beginning of every clinical placement, students are taken through the specific objectives to achieve and professional ethics.  

The School of Nursing currently has students on Nursing Completion Program and it is a Post Basic Training. The students are exposed to more post-basic skills and competencies, including specialized skills. At this stage of training, students are expected to give evidence-based care, have critical thinking for effective decision-making, communicate effectively and exhibit leadership, and management skills. In respect to that students are placed to specialized wards/units.
