University of Sussex Partner National Universities Commission To Train Lecturers in Pedagogy skills This Week

The training of 82 lecturers on pedagogic and didactic skills is ongoing by the NUC in partnership with University of Sussex UK. The one-week training, which began on Monday, with theme, "Transformative Higher Education; Pedagogy and Practice" is aimed at equipping lecturers to provide better education.



During the event, the NUC boss Prof. Abubakar Rasheed hinted on that fact that providing periodical professional development courses for our lecturers in modular formats, will bring quality education and thus better University graduates.



The NUC also made a right choice in accepting to partner with University of Sussex that will provide technical skills and will ensure a quality hands- on training of lecturers. The format is effective as these 82 batch of lecturers trained would become trainers as they return to their institutions to spread the skills acquired.
Looking at where Nigeria's education system is presently, it has become imperative to have for such impactful partnerships; and like the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research, University of Sussex, Prof Michael Davies said, the training would expose lecturers to modern educational skills and facilities as they are known for. This is an upgrade and a facelift for our University system.

The NUC has demonstrated empathy and professionalism in signing this pact for a week long training in addition to all they do yearly to provide better education for Nigerians.

Other dignitaries at the event were the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Sunny Echono, who represented the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, and he brought the message that the Federal Government would continue to support initiatives to enhance quality university education in the country. Also in attendance was the British Council Director of Programmes.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
