UG SRC Demands Face-To-Face Learning — Here’s Why

University of Ghana

The Students Representative Council of the University of Ghana wants the management of the University to allow for physical academic activities for the next academic year.

They are also calling for a discontinuation of the modular system.

Acting President of the SRC, Kwame Amo Ntow-Fianko says that the challenges that students face with online academic activities were enormous.

At a press conference held at the SRC Union Building on Monday, June 8, 2021, Kwame Amo Ntow-Fianko stated that many students were struggling to cope with online studies, hence, the need for university management to revise its decision that academic activities are held mainly online.

Ntow-Fianko believes that physical academic activities will not lead to an upsurge of COVID-19 cases in the university community.

According to him, students can be trusted to adhere to the Covid-19 protocols when they are put in place.

“Based on our experience as far as teaching, learning and examination are concerned, we are proposing that there should be a face-to-face engagement with our students with an assurance that our students are going to adhere to the Covid protocols. These are non-negotiable. These are the things we want from our management going forward. We have seen how this system was run and we don’t want to see it being implemented again,” he said.

Other demands that were made by the SRC were an improvement in the Sakai e-learning platform and practical steps in addressing the accommodation deficit in the university.
