Following his appointment by the Governing Council of University of Cape Coast as Provost of the College of Distance Education (CoDE), Prof. Anokye Mohammed Adam, has assumed office.
Prof. Adam succeeds Prof. Isaac Galyon, who served a-two-term mandate which was six (6) years in duration.
In a statement at a short handover ceremony, Prof. Adam thanked his predecessor for contributing to the success of CoDE during his time in office.
Taking a cue from the fallouts of the Covid-19 impact on academics, he said plans were afoot to digitalize part of the teaching and learning process of the College.
“I also have plans of digitalizing...so we need to digitalize part of our teaching and learning process because we do not know when the next Covid will strike again,” he observed.
Prof. Adam noted, “I am expecting that we implement what we call the service delivery chatter which will prescribe what our client and stakeholders should expect from us and the timelines aligned with it” while calling on the staff of the College to support him achieve his vision.
For his part, Prof. Galyuon thanked the staff of CoDE for their support and called on them to give their full support to the new Provost for the development of the College and UCC as a whole.
He underscored the need for UCC to put up more facilities in the regions to support distance education.
The Pro Vice -Chancellor, Prof. Rosemond Boohene, was present at the handover ceremony and she reiterated the need for staff of CoDE to support the new Provost and his team.
