The seventh edition of the education summit and scholarship awards of the Bridge Leadership Foundation, (TBLF) will focus on new innovations and initiatives in Nigeria’s Learning ecosystem as well as the impact of peer pressure on learning.
A statement issued by the not for profit organisation said the event slated for Friday, November 19th at the Pearl Ball room of the Transcorp Hotel in Calabar will “share initiatives, practices, models and facilitate knowledge exchange that contributes to the achievement of general education, learning, and development of young people in today’s society, especially through formal learning institutions and increasingly unconventional methods.”
The theme of this edition is “Innovative Strategies For Quality Education,” which seeks to, “explore best practices, initiatives, relevant actions and policy frameworks that will help drive education for all, from an inclusive perspective with references to access, quality and technology adoption in the face of growing technological advancements targeting students, educators and key stakeholders.”
Sub-themes of the Summit will be woven around; “Reshaping Nigeria’s Learning Ecosystem: The Way Forward” and a Panel Discussion on “Peer Pressure and Its Effect on Learning,” TBLF said.
The keynote address and the sub-theme will be presented by Alero Ayida-Otobo, Founder – Incubator Africa and Rotimi Eyitayo, CEO – Team Masters Limited, respectively while the panel discussants will be Ene- Anwan Eneyo, Joseph Essien, Juliet Ajinya, Obhazi-Odam Nkasi, and Precious Odey.

And, TBLF said that: “Critically, in remote Nigerian communities, students still lack access to quality learning and the learning curve in Nigeria currently does not address issues such as; access to relevant curriculum, grade progression, effective classroom engagement, creative learning, experienced teachers, and the introduction of digital learning.
“Our conversation will also centre on; the present challenges affecting our education system and the way forward, innovative solutions already being implemented by countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, propose strategies that can be most effective in developing our education system and much more.”
The event which is free, will also be streamed on Facebook and YouTube while Janice Cobham, On-Air Personality (OAP), and Head of Presentation – CRBC Radio, will moderate the discussion with Uke Ogah, OAP, Hit 95.9 FM, Calabar, serving as compere.
