Professor Mrs Rita Akosua Dickson ( new Vice-Chancellor of KNUST), has indicated that the school intends to roll out e-learning systems to ensure seamless academic work all year round.
The newly-invested Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dickson said the need for Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) in teaching and instruction was now relevant than ever before, partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The KNUST will upscale the use of Smart Technologies for both synchronous and asynchronous teaching, learning, assessments, research and University operations, she stressed.
The University also intends to set a Virtual and Augmented Reality Laboratory for 3D-aided learning for the advancement of technology-based learning among students.
She also said that a ‘KNUST’ Feedback App’ was being considered to enhance feedback provision from all staff, students and other stakeholders, in addition to one for Students’ Support Services (SSS).
Prof. Mrs Akosua Dickson is the first female to be invested as Vice-Chancellor since the KNUST was established about 69-years ago, she is a product of the Wesley Girls’ High School, Cape Coast, and obtained her first degree in Pharmacy at the KNUST.
