UESD Professor and others win NMT Grant

Prof. Anthony Amoah of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UESD), is among three other researchers in Ghana who have won a grant from the German Academic Exchanges Service (DAAD) to host the 2023/2024 National Multiplication Training (NMT) project in the country.

The other three are; Dr. Vida Korang (project team lead), Catholic University of Ghana (CUG); Dr. Sewoenam Chachu, University of Ghana, Legon and Prof. Joseph Adjei, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).

Giving an overview of the project in an interview in Sunyani, Dr. Korang explained that the NMT aims to support the growth of higher education management in developing nations as part of the DAAD’s “Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies” (DIES). The initiative is titled “Adoption of Effective Globalization Approaches in Technical Universities in Ghana with the Main Aim of Improving Efficient Globalization Strategies”.

She said, the initial stage of the project will take place in Sunyani from February 23 to February 26, 2024, while the second phase will take place at GIMPA in Accra.

The project will be coordinated by the team in charge with assistance from two national and international experts for 25 chosen global officers and/or faculties from Technical Universities performing roles related to globalization. The University of Potsdam, Germany, and CUG would be the project’s adopting organizations.

The programme includes relevant practical stages where participants would perfect their teaching abilities. An online onboarding phase would round up the training. In an interview with the University Relations Unit, a member of the team, Prof. Anthony Amoah, who is the Dean of the School of Sustainable Development, expressed excitement about the grant because it gives him and his colleagues the opportunity to spread the good news about internationalization.
