Achievements/Milestones/Plans

 

2023 Faculty Workshop

The Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, held its first and second Faculty Workshop Series for the 2022–2023 Academic Session as part of efforts to improve the capability of its employees. Dr. Rasaq Adisa, a Sabbatical Senior Lecturer with the Department of Mass Communication, presented the first workshop on Thursday, February 9, 2023, on the subject of “Qualitative Research Paradigm, Data Management, and Analysis Using Nvivo Software,” and the second workshop for the 2022–2023 academic session was held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023. Professor Abdulwahab Olanrewaju Issa, a sabbatical professor in the Department of Library and Information Science, served as the resource personnel for this. “The Place of Academic Culture and Mentorship in the University System: A Librarian Perspective” was the title of his talk. After the first faculty workshop, a research committee was established under the headship of Professor Abdulwahab Issa of the Department of Library and Information Science. The Committee will suggest research topics and presenters for upcoming Faculty workshops. 

 First Edition of FICT Bulletin

The Faculty of Information and Communication Technology Bulletin’s first issue was published in February 2023 in collaboration with the National Association of Information and Communication Technology Students (NAICTS). The 8-page bulletin covered a variety of topics, including events at the institution, Malete, and Environ.  

 FICT Under CCTV Coverage

To increase safety in the faculty area and to effectively monitor and invigilate exams, Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) was installed across the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology. This project was in collaboration with the National Association of Information and Communication Technology Students (NAICTS). The CCTV cameras were set up, among other places, in the faculty’s front and back entrances, hallways, and exam rooms. By the 2023–2024 academic year, the faculty hopes to have complete CCTV surveillance in every classroom.

KJICT Journal

The faculty journal, KWASU Journal of Information, Communication, and Technology (KJICT) will soon publish its first issue. It is a peer-reviewed, high-quality, twice-yearly publication for academics and researchers in all fields of mass communication, computer science, engineering, information science, library science, statistics, and telecommunication science. KJICT promotes the exchange of original and current, grant-based research, literature reviews, and practical developments protected by copyright. KJICT is to be published in June and December each year.

 Cash Prizes for Faculty Scholars

The procession and presentation of cash prizes to student scholars selected from the three departments that made up the faculty were some of the major highlights of the Faculty Orientation programme held on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. The gesture, according to the acting dean, Dr. Isiaka Zubair Aliagan, was made to encourage healthy academic rivalry and to increase students’ enthusiasm for learning and academic performance.
