MUBAS Conducts leadership workshop
The training took place at Nalipiri Eco Resort from September 15th to 17th 2021.
When delivering the opening remarks, the Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor Associate Professor Betchani Tchereni explained that members of staff at MUBAS need to change their ways of doing things since they are now in competition and there is no room for mediocre.
“Government provides goods and necessities for higher learning hence we need to change our ways of doing things because we are no longer in a monopoly. Our vision is to provide quality education in areas such as research, innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Associate Professor Tchereni.
He added that MUBAS needs to improve its processes in terms of communications, operations of examinations, teaching and learning plus quality assurance.
“By the end of this workshop we should be able to know what is expected of us leaders, where do we want to be ranked internationally as a university and also intensifying research as one way of motivating people to conduct research in various areas of their expertise,” added Associate Professor Tchereni.
Presentations were made on topics such as; Communications by Victor Chikoti, Governance in the Public Sector, by Kezzie Mkandawire, Roles of Heads and Deans by the DVC, Roles of Registry and Academic leadership by Dr Okoma Atani Malunga, Finance Management by Chikondi Jenala, Library Services by Dr Dorothy Eneya, ICT Services by Dr Patrick Chikumba, Procurement Processes by Madalitso Duwa and Quality Assurance in higher learning by Professor Elizabeth Kayambazinthu.
In closing, the Acting Vice Chancellor Associate Professor Nancy Chitera engaged the members in the way forward on the issues that emerged during the workshop.
