UEW Organises Workshop for Affiliated Institutions in the Northern Sector
Participants who attended a two-day workshop organised by the University of Education Winneba (UEW) in Kumasi for its affiliate institutions in the Northern Sector of the country gave thumbs-up to UEW for the move which in their view would positively impart the quality of their delivery.
They appeared very impressed about the depth of knowledge that was exposed to them by the expert facilitators and the good organisational efforts that ensured the success of the training. The Affiliate Institutions including the Jackson College of Education; Golden Star College of Education; University College of Management Studies (UCoMS); Archer College of Education (ACE) and DHI College of Health and Education sent representatives (both Teaching and Non-Teaching) to the April 11-12, 2018 workshop held at the College of Technology Education, Kumasi (COLTEK).
As part of his speech to officially open the workshop on April 11, 2018, the Registrar, Surveyor Paul Osei Barima Esq said their excellent performance would have a good telling on UEW and therefore the University would continue to explore ways to help them hone their competencies so they could work at optimal levels to the benefit of themselves, UEW and the general public. “This workshop is one of the ways UEW is using to ensure that our mentees are well groomed to work to national standards and warrant the UEW’s continuous certification of their students”.
Subsequently, he charged the participants to tune themselves to grasp all that were to be exposed to them so they could in-turn teach it to their colleagues upon their return to their respective institutions. Appearing quite satisfied by the workshop experience, the participants expressed thankfulness to the management of UEW for the opportunity.
Ag. Principal of ACE, Mr. Bennie Cooke,said the workshop had been timely and insightful. He hoped that such training would be organised frequently to keep the affiliates abreast of the direction of the UEW and changing trends in operating a tertiary educational institution.
Miss Akua Twumwaa Oduro of JCE not only shared similar views but commended the facilitators for the expert manner they handled the various topics while Mr. Baffoe Duku Addo of GSCE hoped that future workshops would be organised for longer durations since in his view, the just ended one had been overly compressed.
The facilitators and topics they treated included Surveyor Paul Osei Barima Esq., Governance Structure in the University; Director of ITECPD, Assoc. Prof. Dominic Danso Mensah, Teaching and Learning Methods and Agent of Classroom Management; Senior Lecturer and Head of Education Resource Centre, Dr. Samuel Asare Amoah, Assessment Issues- Item Construction (Essay and Multiple Choice Questions), Developing Marking Scheme and Academic Quality Assurance.
The others were Acting College Registrar for the Mampong Campus, Mr. Augustus Brew, Minutes Writing, Reports Writing and Role of the University Relations Department as well as the Senior Assistant Registrar, Department of Institutional Affiliation (DIA), Mr. E. Abeiku Addokoh, Accreditation Issues. The programme was moderated by the Ag. College Registrar of Kumasi Campus, Mr. M. K. Twum-Ampomah.
