And promised that interactive boards and other important teaching aids as requested by the Board would be provided to the Center to enable it improve the students’ learning experiences.
On the rationale for the visit, Professor Ajeyalemi, said it was to sensitize and discover the readiness of member universities to participate in this year’s examination that would be simultaneously conducted across the country.
He also noted that part of the visit was to ascertain the university’s challenges in the running of JUPEB programmes so as to contribute in their solutions. And reiterated the Boards’ commitment in ensuring strict compliance to its curriculum especially as it affects those disciplines that require practical applications.
Professor Ajeyalemi further appealed to the Vice-Chancellor to pay more attention to Centre for Educational Services by providing flexible demarcations within their lecture hall, adding that the introduction of interactive boards would also ensure clearer visibility and wider participation among the students. He equally urged the Management to maintain strict disciplinary actions to regulate the conducts of students.
Meanwhile, the Center of Educational Services, AE-FUNAI, would join other member universities of JUPEB to conduct this year’s foundation examination scheduled to hold on 12th June, 2018.
