The Takoradi Technical University (TTU) has introduced a new learning system where seventy percent of class activities will be done virtually with the remaining thirty percent at the lecture halls albeit a shift system.

This forms part of measures introduced to protect the students and staff from the coronavirus infections.

“We have come up with what we call the blended learning mode, where we are doing 70/30. 70 will be theoretically based programmes which will be done online.”

 “The remaining 30 will be practical. We have prepared the timetable in such a way that if your lecture period falls within the 70, you don’t need to come to campus because everything will be done online. So you can be in your hostel or anywhere and all you need is to hook on to the google classroom and have your interaction with your lecturer.”

“The lecture notes and everything will be uploaded onto the google classroom. If it is practical which is the 30 percent as I said we have also decided with the lecturers and have cut down the numbers into groups so that they will run shift and that will help ease the congestion at the lecture theaters,” registrar of the school, Moses Maclean Abnory told 3news.com

Mr. Abnory added that after several considerations management of the school has also changed the housing policy where only first year students will be accommodated at the various halls of residency on campus.

“…going forward we have decided that we are going to house all first year students into the University’s available vacancies. We also went ahead to engage some private hostels and ensured that our standards have been met. We have gone further to engage private companies for a medium to long term plan in solving accommodation problems. If you go across the school’s field, you will see a structure which was built in 6 months. What you see there, we are going to replicate that fourteen times. Each block takes about 300 people. So we are looking at 3000 bed space for students when completed.”

The registrar explained the measures are part of a number of interventions that the school is deploying as school reopens for both first and continuing students to safeguard them from the COVID 19 virus.

The Takoradi Technical University is expecting over four thousand first year students and ten thousand continuing students.

The registrar assured that the school is poised to protect both the teaching and non – teaching students and has set up a medical taskforce that will, on daily bases, be monitoring and ensuring that all COVID 19 protocols are followed religiously.
