From the Dean's Desk

Faculty of Education

Nasarawa State University Keffi, Nigeria 

 

The aim of schooling is to grow children into productive citizens that use their knowledge, talents, and learned skills to sustain themselves and to help others while pushing the human race forward in areas of progress,  equity, equality and harmony. It is worthy to note that all Faculties aim at this; but it is the Faculty of Education through is pedagogical function that enables the realisation of this because education itself and by itself is a process of facilitating learning or acquisition of knowledge,  skills,  values,  beliefs and habits. Therefore, the Faculty of education is the training and breeding ground for qualifying professional Faculty members in all Faculties. This makes our faculty, the father of all faculties. To do this credibly well, our faculty is currently subdivided into four departments namely; Educational foundations, Educational management, Arts and Social science Education (ASSE) and Science, Technology and mathematics Education (STME). Additional six (6) departments have been proposed including Library and Information science,  Human kinetics and health,  Counseling psychology, Vocational and technology education, while ASSE will be broken into two departments inline with needs to reduce the gap between the town and the gown. 

All the current departments have departmental journals and there is a faculty journal. The departments and faculty continually organise high impact National and international conferences for upskilling and refueling of about 80 staffs. 

The current Dean,  Prof Maicibi Alhas Nok,  is the 5th Dean. 

We,  as the custodian of pedagogy and knowledge will continue to tenaciously uphold and sustain the esteem Principles and tenets of Pedagogical Pansophism propounded by the Father of Education - Johann Amos Comenius ( 1592 - 1670).

 

We in the Faculty of Education are proud not only to be a teacher but also as the producers of great teachers for the state, Nigeria, Africa and worldwide over.
