UHAS held a one-week training workshop on curriculum repurposing for blended learning, November 12 to 16, for an initial cohort of 30 faculty members at UHAS Main Campus, Ho.
In his opening remarks, Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. Harry Tagbor said UHAS is among 12 institutions of higher education in sub-Saharan Africa to benefit from the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) Partnership for Enhanced Blended Learning West Africa Project. He added that UHAS would use a blend of eLearning and traditional physical interactions as a contemporary solution to meet the higher educational demands of all learners, including those who are geographically disadvantaged. According to the Pro-VC, there will be successive training sessions to ensure that all faculty members of the University go through this training.
A second training session is planned for 30 faculty members of the Fred N. Binka School of Public Health. At least two out of five faculty members selected from each UHAS school will also receive training as trainers.
Dr. Anita Dartey, Dr. Donatus Adongo, Mr. Emmanuel Anyidoho, and Dr. Joseph Sarfo, who received training as trainers during the pilot phase conducted by ACU, were facilitators at this workshop.
