We are happy to announce that The Bridge Leadership Foundation Education Summit and Scholarship Awards is scheduled to hold on Friday, November 19, 2021, at the Pearl Ball Room, Transcorp Hotel, Calabar, Cross River State from 10 am.
This one-day summit, the 7th edition in the series, will be delivered with the theme, “Innovative Strategies For Quality Education In Nigeria.”
The Summit and Scholarship Awards seek to share initiatives, practices, models and facilitate knowledge exchange that contributes to the achievement of general education, learning, and development of young people in today’s society, especially through formal learning institutions and increasingly unconventional methods.
In the past seven years, the event has had more than 3,101 physical attendants as well as 400 virtual participants in 2020. Additionally, it has awarded academic scholarships to 182 students in public secondary schools and universities across communities in Cross River State and beyond.
This years’ theme will explore best practices, initiatives, relevant actions and policy frameworks that will help drive education for all, from an inclusive perspective with references to access, quality and technology adoption in the face of growing technological advancements targeting students, educators and key stakeholders.
Sub-themes of the Summit will be woven around; “Reshaping Nigeria’s Learning Ecosystem: The Way Forward” and a Panel Discussion on “Peer Pressure and Its Effect on Learning.”
Critically, in remote Nigerian communities, students still lack access to quality learning and the learning curve in Nigeria currently does not address issues such as; access to relevant curriculum, grade progression, effective classroom engagement, creative learning, experienced teachers, and the introduction of digital learning.
Our conversation will also centre on; the present challenges affecting our education system and the way forward, innovative solutions already being implemented by countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, propose strategies that can be most effective in developing our education system and much more.
The keynote address and the sub-theme will be presented by Alero Ayida-Otobo, Founder – Incubator Africa and Rotimi Eyitayo, CEO – Team Masters Limited respectively. The panel discussants will be Ene- Anwan Eneyo, Joseph Essien, Juliet Ajinya, Obhazi-Odam Nkasi, and Precious Odey.
Janice Cobham, On-Air Personality, OAP, and Head of Presentation – CRBC Radio, will moderate the discussion while Uke Ogah, OAP, Hit 95.9 FM, Calabar, will be the compere.
The event will be streamed live on the organization’s Facebook and YouTube platforms.
