The Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) has donated some projectors to the Faculty of Arts of the University of Cape Coast. This follows a request the Faculty earlier made to the Chamber for assistance with procuring projectors to help improve teaching and learning.
Presenting the items on behalf of the board and management, CBOD CEO Senyo Hosi said, in the age of digitalization, it has become necessary for teaching institutions to use modern technologies.
“We need to have our students build on their presentation skills and lecturers administer [lectures] effectively with modern technology.
Dean of the Faculty Prof Kwame Osei Kwarteng who led a delegation from the UCC’s Faculty of Arts to receive the items here in Accra expressed gratitude to the CBOD.
“We would want to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for responding to our request. We are in the fourth industrial revolution, so now is the time that there is the need for us to use this equipment [projectors, computers, laptops, ipads, etc.] so that it can enhance teaching, learning and research. We don’t have them in our departments. Since I became the Dean I made it one of my visions to ensure we get it. Financially we were constrained and fortunately, we invited you to attend our roundtable discussion and I put this before you and you have graciously responded. It was Covid that delayed but better late than never. We are going to put it to proper use.”
Senyo Hosi encouraged corporate Ghana to lend their support to academia to help in developing the skills of Ghana’s youth with the right resources.
He also commended the UCC for its strides in education wished the Faculty all the best in the years ahead.
In 2019, Senyo Hosi participated in a round table discussion organized by UCC on the topic “Preparing Graduates for the World of Work: The role of Universities.”
