In anticipation of seamless and qualitative academic activities in the Omega semester of the 2021/2022 academic session, the Management of Landmark University led by the acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Charity Aremu in collaboration with the Directorate of Academic Planning organized a one-day in-house training for members of Faculty of the University. The training which was aimed at discussing areas for improvement in the quality of teaching, research and mentorship among others featured two facilitators – Professor Moses Bamiro of the College of Agricultural Sciences, and Professor Emmanuel Ajisegiri of the College of Engineering – who mentored the participants from their wealth of knowledge. 

In her opening remarks, the acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu stated that the reason for the existence of a University is teaching and research, which are the responsibility of every faculty, hence the reason for the training. According to her, teaching and learning reputation is equally important and until qualitative teaching is attained, no institution can record a world-time higher rank. Professor Aremu, thereafter, urged all participants to embrace the trend, harness the opportunity of the training and show improved results in their outputs. While speaking to the presentations, the acting Vice-Chancellor noted with enthusiasm the aptness of the topics to the University context as she expressed optimism that they would have a visible impact on the academic operations of the University.

In the first presentation titled “Teaching and Learning Reputations: Best Approach In Handling Large Classes”, Professor Moses Bamiro of the College of Agricultural Sciences revealed to participants personal qualities that enhance a teacher’s reputation, practical nuggets in handling large classes, and the benefits of building a reputation among others. “Teachers' reputations are earned by great outputs positioned and delivered with consistently high standards right across an organization and to our many audiences and stakeholders over the long-term. Reputations, like anything precious, need nurturing and careful management. A good reputation is hard-won, but quickly lost”, Professor Bamiro indicated. 

In the second presentation, Professor Emmanuel Ajisegiri advised members of the faculty to encourage listening skills, build community, build confidence, share ideas and solutions and develop understanding while speaking on the topic “Teaching Pedagogy and Global Best Practices: Keys to Preparing Quality Lecture Materials”. Professor Ajisegiri added that to achieve best global practices, the above and other values of learning must be put in place, practised and administered. In addition, Professor Ajisegiri identified fieldwork, research, teaching materials, seminars, tutorials, laboratory and creating time for self-education as the prerequisites for global best practices in teaching. 

While closing the training, the acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu stated that the journey to the world-class status begins with each faculty as she urged them to utilize the opportunity inherent in the training. “To make our graduates compete globally, we need to drive and engage technology inclined learning”, she added. 

The one-day training featured sessions of mentoring and questions and answers from the participants.
