The 2022/2023 school year for Biaka University Institute of Buea (BUIB) has kicked off with plenty of enthusiasm from both teachers and students of this Institution. Commenced on October 5th 2022, Lecturers have embarked on an Academic and Research planning session aimed to remind themselves of the roles and responsibilities of lecturers in this area as they accompany students throughout the academic year. Opening the session this 7th day of October 2022, the Vice Chancellor of BUIB Dr. Mrs. Francisca Hongla Biaka while welcoming the guest speaker called on staff to embrace new ideas for the good of the institution.
Addressing participants, the Guest speaker Professor Foba Josepha reiterated the fact that research is inevitable in the academic teaching process while presenting on the theme “Research Planning- the Research Process and Grant writing”
This academic exercise as noted by the DVC i/c Academic Affairs, Research and Cooperation Prof. Fonkeng Epah George is very relevant as it throws more light on academic research which facilitates learning and promotes the growth of the institution.
