Over 350 luganda teachers from schools across central Uganda participated in this year’s Annual Luganda Teachers Conference recently. The two day conference organized by the Department of Humanities and Language Education, aimed to bring together teachers to share classroom experiences and to disseminate research findings in language education and Luganda in particular.
Participants were treated to a series of presentations centered on the conference theme “Examination/test Instrument construction in luganda language teaching,” by guests and School of Education staff.
In his opening remarks, the Principal CEES Dr Fred Masagazi urged teachers to write books in order to develop the luganda language. He further urged them to upgrade their academic qualifications and return to the College to undertake bachelors, masters and Phd degrees. Dr Masagazi informed participants that plans are underway to re-organise the annual conference into a fully fledge freshers' course. He concluded by thanking the organizers for a job well done.
“The conference helped to identify important ways in which we can all work together to develop better assessments in the luganda language arena”, said Dr Robinah Kyeyune, Chair DHLE.
