PRO-VC (ASA) Inspects Classroom Modernisation Sites

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Academic and Student Affairs, Prof. Gordon Awandare, who is also the Chair of the Classroom Modernisation Committee together with members of the Committee have inspected ongoing renovation works at the lecture theatres.  

It would be recalled that one of the three-pronged technology-driven initiatives by the Vice-Chancellor, to enhance the experience of students is the Classroom Modernisation project. Consequently, selected lecture halls on all campuses of the University have been earmarked to be redesigned to accommodate smart devises which will support learning technologies to provide students with easy-to-access information and faculty with interactive software.

Prof. Awandare and the Classroom Modernisation Committee members visited the Larweh-Oracca Tetteh Building, K. A. Busia Building, GCB Building, ‘N’ and New ‘N’ Blocks. During the inspection, there were discussions centered on the use of smartboards, fixing of air conditioners, burglar proofs, internet connectivity, ventilation issues, physical works to address floods at the GCB building and painting of the exteriors and interiors of the classrooms.  

The inspection team revealed plans to visit the University of Ghana Medical School and the Accra City Campus to have first-hand information of the civil works arrangement. At the end of the inspection exercise, Prof. Awandare expressed satisfaction with the progress made and hinted that the team would embark on a similar exercise at the end of the semester where Phase 2 of the project would have been completed at the Jones Quartey Building and the Central Cafeteria Lecture Hall.

Accompanying Prof. Awandare were Prof. Kwasi Dartey-Baah, Acting Director, Institutional Advancement Office; Prof. Gordon Abekah-Nkrumah, Chairman, University Health Management Committee; Dr. Emmanuel Adu-Sarkodee, Group Chairman of Phoenix Insurance Ltd. and member of UGBS School Management Committee; Mr. Charles Kofinti, Director of PDMSD; Mrs. Elizier Taiba Ameyaw-Buronyah, Director of Public Affairs; Mr. Francis Kwabena Boachie, the Chief Information Technology Officer; Mr. Sampson Owusu-Afriyie, Director, Logistics Directorate; Mrs Lydia Anowa Nyako-Danquah, Director, Academic Affairs Directorate (AAD); Mr. Frederick Yuorkuu, Senior Assistant Registrar, AAD; Ms. Victoria Anim, Assistant Registrar, Office of the Pro-VC (ASA), Architect Edmund Tetteh, PDMSD, and Prince Asumadu, SRC President.
