COVID-19: GIJ leaves face to face to online teaching and learning

GIJ directs students who paid fees late to defer programme

The Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) says it will no longer continue the face to face teaching and learning for newly admitted and continuing students for 1st semester of the 2020/2021 academic year.

GIJ in a statement copied to said lecturers for continuing students effective January 25, 2021, will take place online via the Learning Management System (LMS) of the Institute.

“First-year students, including Level 300 Top-up students, will migrate to online studies after the third week of face to face teaching effective February 1, 2021”, the GIJ Management stated in the release.

The Institute urged students to quickly adapt to the new normal of online learning as we seek to ensure their safety and meet the exigencies of the time.

It is currently not clear why the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has suddenly moved from face to face to online teaching and learning but some people are saying is amid fears of the novel coronavirus on campus.
