The Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS) Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ishmail Kosamu has called upon all academic members of staff to continuously embrace and adopt more innovative and creative skills in teaching and learning to live up to the expectations of the ever-evolving world of knowledge.

Professor Kosamu made the remarks on 12 March 2024, when opened the Certificate of University Teaching and Learning (CUTL) workshop at Victoria Hotel in Blantyre.  

"As a university that values excellence and integrity, this workshop is aimed at promoting professionalism in teaching and learning for both staff and students," said Kosamu.

"The presence of so many academic members of staff at this workshop demonstrates your commitment to improve your skills in teaching and therefore this must be commended," he added.

The CUTL workshop which ran from 11-13 March 2024 aimed at equipping lecturers with skills in content delivery, class management, research supervision, planning, and examination management which included testing and measurement and professional etiquette among others. 

Speaking in an interview at the end of the workshop, the Head of Academic Quality Assurance at MUBAS, Dr. Adamson Thengolose, said the workshop was organized to enhance teaching and learning at the university.

"We need lecturers who are always on top of their work so that we give good service delivery to the students and that they satisfy the stakeholders," said Thengolose

Tamanda Kajaye, an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Journalism and Media Studies said the workshop was an eye-opener as it has shed more insights on the dictates of university teaching and learning which will help her to improve her teaching. 

"This workshop was very important, especially to those of us without prior experience in university teaching as it will help us to effectively teach at the university level. It will bridge the skills gap that existed in our professional journey in the academy," said Kajaye.

Over seventy lecturers including technicians and part-time teaching staff attended the workshop.
