We are redefining the concept of education, says Fagbohun
Vice-Chancellor, Lagos State University (LASU), Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, has disclosed that the institution is redefining the concept of education globally through its teaching and learning methodology.
Fagbohun who disclosed this at the school’s entrepreneurial exhibition tagged, “ENT 302,” where students displayed different craftwork ranging from leather making, fish farming, food processing, website design, make-up, bread, cake baking, event planning and decorating, musical performance, among others was obviously impressed at the level of extra-intellectual craftsmanship displayed by the students. He lauded the participants for their originality, adding that his administration is enjoying the soaring international rating of LASU.
He said: “Those who knew LASU four or five years ago would not believe what is happening here presently. I am so happy. We are redefining the concept of education. We are redefining the concept of working together. Our world-class students, you are the brains behind this and we are proud of you and will continue to showcase you. He stated that the Lagos State ministry of finance is already working with LASU management towards actualising the dream.
“The Lagos State government has an endowment in terms of entrepreneurship. We will support you to access this” he concluded.The entrepreneurship programme of the school has helped most of the students to be independent. Some of them who spoke to The Guardian expressed gratitude to the facilitator of the programme.
According to Lanre, “I have really garnered experience in fish farming, now, I know how to hatch egg to fish and how to feed and preserve them. This knowledge is highly beneficial as it is capable of making me a millionaire. Fish business is lucrative but could be risky at times. So, I really want to go into fish farming business but no capital at hand, for now.”
For another student who identified herself as Busayo, “I love the woman I’m becoming, now I can make leather bags, sandals and even slippers. The four-month training has gone a long way in my life, as I’m gradually becoming a professional in my business.
Emmanuel, a make-up artist, remarked, “I love making up for ladies to make them look more beautiful, I derive pleasure in make up businesses and I really wish to develop my business even after school.”
Rushdah, who is now into web developing and designing, is also not left out, as she said: “ENT 302 has given me the basic knowledge on how to create and develop a website. I can now build website for anyone including organisations, thus making me an independent creator.”
