AUN Partners FCE in Resource Sharing, Training
The American University of Nigeria continues to strengthen its efforts in community service, initiating cooperation with Federal College of Education, Yola, to provide e-learning, resource sharing, and training.
AUN has also agreed to create weekend training programs for FCE students and faculty members, focusing on the critical analysis of information and open-access sources. Both institutions agreed to come up with proposals to access national and international grants.
Additional areas of concern discussed at a meeting on Thursday, July 12, include collaboration in teacher training for early childhood education, agricultural skill acquisition, and other areas that will impact the Yola community.
The University Librarian, Mr. Amed Demirhan, who initiated the liaison, said he is “excited about this partnership program that will lead the college on the e-learning path.” President Margee Ensign, also at the meeting, noted that AUN is fortunate to have resources and feels obliged to share them. She then handed over a flash drive to the FCE Provost, Mr. Abdulmumin Sa’ad, to symbolize the new ties between the two institutions.
FCE Librarian, Mr. Dahiru Aliyu, said that the College leadership was overwhelmed by the fruitful visit. “No University can be said to be successful without impacting its immediate society,” he said. “AUN has done that and more.”
Also present at the meeting, held inside the FCE premises, was Assistant Vice-President for Public Relations & Communications, Mr. Abba Tahir, and other senior administrators of the College, including the Deputy Provost, Mr. Felix Anyanwu, and Deputy College Librarian, Ms. Maryam Bakari Ribadu.
Both parties agreed to work together to facilitate internet access sharing, as well as reorganize College resources from print to online. The present Internet access at the FCE is expected to improve with the cooperation coming on stream.
