UEW Adopts Hybrid System Of Teaching For Next Academic Year.

The University Of Education Winneba (UEW), has adopted a hybrid system of teaching and learning for the 2020/2021 academic year in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Pro- Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Andy Ofori-Birikorang, has disclosed.

Addressing the media to spell out measures put in place to ensure the smooth running of the University in the midst of the pandemic, he said the University had put in place the needed measures to ensure smooth academic activities going forward with or without the pandemic.

He said, “the new policy of UEW is to roll out the hybrid module of teaching and learning in the new academic year if the Covid-19 pandemic lingers on making it very difficult for students to gather”.

Again, he indicated that the University took the challenge for particularly tertiary institutions to adopt the new ways of teaching and learning for the benefit of both teachers and students, hence the introduction of the hybrid system.

Upgrading of LMS

The Pro- Vice Chancellor stated that the LMS had come to stay and that between now and September, management was working towards the upgrading of the system to accommodate all students and lectures in the event that students were unable to come to school.

He mentioned that, “the University would ensure that all students and lectures were enrolled onto the new system to take part in teaching and learning”, the LMS would be the only means to reach out the large number of students of the University.

He encouraged both lectures and students to embrace the LMS system since it had been adopted as a new phenomenon due to Covid-19 pandemic to make teaching and learning very interesting.

Prof. Ofori-Birikorang hinted that plans were underway to hold a virtual graduation for all final-year students by the end of August 2020 in order not to unnecessary delay the certificate of such students who were eager to seek employment opportunity in all sectors of the economy.
