Prof. Segun Ajiboye, the Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), says the council is mobilising thousands of Nigerian teachers to participate in an online global conference.

Ajiboye said this in a statement made available to News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) on Thursday in Ibadan.

He said the focus of the conference was adapting teaching to the change caused by corona virus disease (COVID-19) pandemic

“The conference is coordinated in Nigeria by T4Education in Nigeria.

The T4Education conference is an international package put together to address the issue of COVID-19 pandemic and education, especially as it affects teachers.

The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria through its state offices mobilised Nigerian teachers to attend the online conference knowing its relevance.

According to him, Nigerian teachers top the over 50,000 participants who have registered for the free online global conference.

He stated that the state offices of TRCN mobilised teachers in their respective domains to bring them up to speed on the adaptive mode of teaching occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ajiboye noted that the conference scheduled to begin on 30 May, 2020, would expose Nigerian teachers as part of the global professional knowledge impartation to prepare them for the new reality of their job.

Themed: “the New Normal for teachers”, the conference is aimed at sharing knowledge on how to leverage technology to retool teachers in a new world unfolding by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The TRCN boss stated that knowledge gained through the global conference would empower Nigerian teachers to learn new teaching dynamics  in their profession.

According to him, the conference will also help them compare notes and understand how to navigate the current challenge, which has halted schooling in Nigeria due to the pandemic

“And it’s also a potential to address new challenges arising from the pandemic. 

“It is heartwarming to note that out of over 50,000 (fifty thousand) teachers who have registered for this conference globally, Nigerian teachers constitute the majority. 

“The conference comes up on Saturday May 30, 2020,” Ajiboye said
