The Sub-Dean, Faculty of Education, Lagos State University, Dr Oludare Olufowobi, has commended the institution for complying with COVID-19 protocols.
Olufowobi, at a virtual training for members of staff on Tuesday, added that both students and staff of the university had imbibed the culture of hand washing, wearing face masks and observing physical distancing.
The don, while speaking on the topic, ‘Quality Assurance in Students’ Matters: Post-COVID-19 Pandemic’, said, “LASU has done well in ensuring compliance. The pandemic has thrown up a lot of challenges, the students have been at home for too long; so, they need counselling, new orientation. The lecturers need to be cautious in dealing with the students.
“Based on the directive of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, that the state-owned tertiary institutions should reopen for academic activities, our final year students last week Monday resumed classes and academic life has gradually returned to normalcy at the institution’s Ojo, Ikeja and Epe campuses.
“Lecturers must show more care for the students at this critical period. Most importantly, there is the need to continue to adhere strictly to the guidelines on COVID-19 as the virus is still with us.”
The Deputy Registrar/Secretary, Postgraduate School, LASU, Dr Olubukunola Kolawole, who spoke on the topic, ‘Quality Assurance in Administrative Service Delivery: Post-COVID-19 Pandemic’, urged members of staff to be exposed to technology in order to meet up with the ‘new normal.’
