Experts canvass robust networking among educators to lift sector
Education providers at all levels have been advised to regularly liaise with professional bodies or organisations so as to continually be abreast of changes and new trends in the sector.
Stakeholders who spoke at an information session organised by the International Educational Management Network (IEDUMAN), recently, held that sharing knowledge and interacting with professionals on issues affecting teaching and learning would lift the sector.
The key speakers are Chairman, Advisory Board of IEDUMAN, Prof. Adams Onuka; President, Dr. Onyeka Jaivbo-Ojigbo; member of the advisory board, Uri Ngozichukwuka; Legal Adviser, Alex Irotumhe; Director of Schools Administration, Lagos State Education District III, Dr. Mudasiru Raji; Chief Executive Officer, A Fruitful Environment Limited, Adeniyi Arimoro, among others.
In their respective remarks, the speakers’ lamented the state of the country’s education sector and enjoined stakeholders in both the public and private sector to rise to the challenge and help transform the sector.
Onuka in his presentation titled “Global education skills: How do we prepare for the future?” stressed the need for all education managers to place premium on learning outcomes and ensure pupils and students acquire the needed skills before graduation.
“IEDUMAN is an educational network of professionals. It promotes global best practices as well as intellectual understanding amongst education professionals. It provides support to educators by creating database of resources, in addition to fostering connections at our EduFair events.
“We bring together education professionals like lecturers, training consultants, school directors, educational IT providers, proprietors and other relevant stakeholders, to advise, research and advocate for best practices that will help improve processes in order to produce positive outcomes.
Corroborating Onuka’s view, Dr. Jaivbo-Ojigbo, said it is highly imperative for education providers to consistently network and seek healthy relationships, since the scale of development of a county is highly dependent on the level of its educators.
