The Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University, Ogun State, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, has said the use of real and virtual learning spaces will encourage the continuation of active learning beyond the formal classroom setting.

He said this at the 2022 World Literacy Day, organised by the Covenant University Community Impact Initiative Committee.

Titled, ‘Transforming literacy learning spaces’ Adebayo stated that World Literacy Day was established in 1966 by a proclamation of UNESCO, with the aim to remind people about the importance of literacy in terms of respect and human rights.

“In recent times, educational institutions have emphasised classrooms as the basic space where learning takes place. Ancillary learning spaces in schools include the library, laboratory, and faculty office (for individual mentoring).

However, increasingly, the virtual space is being incorporated into the classroom and other physical locations as a locus for learning. Consequently, there is a need to broaden our concept of learning spaces.”

“The notion of learning spaces should include platforms that enable teachers to display course content and allow learners access to learning materials outside the classroom. Learning spaces need to provide instructors and students with interactive tools that empower knowledge exploration. Therefore, educational institutions must address the need for real and virtual learning spaces to encourage the continuation of active learning beyond the formal classroom.”

He also appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria to ensure that the ongoing strike of the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities was called off as soon as possible, saying that the students and their guardians were adversely affected by the ongoing strike.

In her remarks, the Chairman, CU-CDIIC, Dr Tayo George, stated that in one of the past CUDIIC events in commemoration of World Literacy Day, CUDIIC donated a new set of laboratory equipment to Unity High school, Oke-Ore,Atan Community, in Ota and renovated the school’s laboratory.
