Following the full reopening of the economy, all high institutions of learning were expected to accept their students to report physically for lectures.
Well, this has not been possible at Makerere University and a section of students are not happy with it. They have threatened to protest against the university’s decision to continue teaching online despite the reopening.
Timothy Weere, the Finance secretary for government-sponsored students at the University told a national news outlet that a strike could be organized if the administration does not open for physical learning.
“The strike will be on. Since the head of State re-opened the economy, it is not worthy for the Vice Chancellor to continue telling lecturers to hold lectures online. This is why we want to bring in our forces as student leaders to see that this does not happen,”Weere said.
Apparently, some lecturers have maintained their stand on online teaching since this does not require them to move from their comfort zones.
