Ugandan Academic Pays Return Visit to Stran


It was a pleasure to welcome Dr Joyce Ayikoru to Stranmillis for a tour of the College and to meet with Dr Heaslett and the Senior Management Team.

Dr Ayikoru is Associate Professor and Dean of Education at Kyambogo University in Uganda. Dr John McMullen and Dr Sharon Jones met Dr Ayikoru in Uganda in January 2017 and a College delegation will again visit the Teacher Education and Early Childhood Development departments in Kyambogo University next month.

Alongside our developing relationship with charity organisation ‘Fields of Life’, Stranmillis hopes to partner with a university in Uganda which could potentially provide opportunities for research, placements and enrichment of teaching and support. A number of staff and students have travelled to Uganda over the past two years and it is hoped that the College can welcome more Ugandan visitors to Stranmillis in the future!
