Lecturer (Mathematics) Job in Nigeria

 Miva Open University is an education company building a new kind of university targeted at the African region. Miva is a Pan-African Distance e-Learning University that is built on a couple of beliefs: Firstly, we believe that the traditional brick-and-mortar approach to tertiary education is no longer a viable option for serving learners on the African continent. This approach will not provide the capacity and efficacy for the people of the region. We are building a university experience that leverages excellent academic talent (wherever it is to be found) and digital technologies to create a new, fresh, more efficacious and more accessible tertiary experience. Our second belief is that this new tertiary experience must not only meet but exceed the existing way of doing things in terms of quality, efficacy and preparing learners for the future. We are uncompromising in these beliefs and this is why we are excited to speak to you.
