TRAINING, A VITAL TOOL FOR PRODUCTIVITY - VC
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Obi has identified training as a vital tool for productivity, saying it contributes to an effective and productive workforce.
Prof Obi made the statement at the institution's Senate Chamber during a One-Day workshop organized by the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) for some categories of lecturers.
The Vice-Chancellor, who was represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic, Prof Angela Oyo-Ita said training and re-training of academic staff have become imperative as it allows them to update their knowledge and be well-equipped with the requisite skills for teaching.
She said, '' We haven't had this orientation for some time now and this has created some deficiency in productivity. The training will enable us to know what is expected of us as lecturers and productivity will be enhanced.
'' The training will further inculcate knowledge on the lecturers, who will, in turn, transfer the knowledge to the students''
While commending the CTLE for the bold initiative, the Vice-Chancellor charged the Centre not to relent in its efforts at building the capacity of staff by holding periodic training.
The Director of CTLE, Prof Mbe Nja in his remarks, said the training was organized to provide the lecturers with concise and accurate information about the teaching profession to prepare them for the task ahead.
