FUOYE to become a dual mode university — Prof Soremekun
The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Prof. Kayode Soremekun has said the institution is now on course to become a dual mode University.
Soremekun stated this after a series of meetings with the leadership of Commonwealth of Learning (COL), in Vancouver, Canada, to strategise on transiting the institution into a dual mode University.
According to him, such an institution combines the existing conventional academic programmes with distance learning.
The VC said: “Nigeria has representatives on COL’s Board of Governors, and this enables our academic institutions to have linkages with the open University network.
“ I have visited COL and held series of meetings with the organisation and the matters discussed were focused on developing FUOYE with regards to quality assurance, employability and the strategy to transit the institution into a dual mode University.
“Dual mode means that we are complementing our existing orthodox programmes with the Distance Learning Programme.”
COL is an intergovernmental organisation established by the Commonwealth Heads of Government in 1988, to encourage the development and sharing of open learning and distance education knowledge and resources.
