A UK based educational consultant and minister Rev. Henry Godson-Afful has donated some educational technology gadgets to the Department of Business and Social Sciences Education to help lecturers and students put their training into practical use.

“I have managed to donate an interactive white board, projector, tripod and cameras to help with hybrid learning and so we are not only here for the training but to also ensure its practicability”, he said.

On his part, the Head of Department for Business and Social Sciences Education, Dr. Bernard Yaw Sekyi Acquah expressed his gratitude for the gesture and promised both the training and items donated would be put into good use.

“This donation is very much appreciated because it has come at the right time and will be used for the department’s seminars every week, and the training he has given us has also adequately prepared us to make effective use of them”, he said.

He added that “the hybrid learning is a welcoming idea as students who are unable to come for activities due to Covid19 and other challenges can effectively participate in teaching and learning”.

Dr. Sekyi Acquah also called on “other bodies and alumni of the University of Cape Coast to all come on board and support the university to fulfill its mandate”.

Rev. Henry Godson-Afful also used the opportunity to facilitate a training workshop for lecturers and staff of the department on the use of technology in a hybrid classroom.
