Gearing up for our 2020 virtual graduation
The Zetech University graduating class of 2020 is an excited cohort as they prepare to graduate in the University’s first-ever exclusively virtual graduation. The ceremony will be a first of its kind as students in different programmes graduate with the certificates having successfully completed all the requirements for graduation.
The new normal has impacted the education sector in different ways, challenging institutions to embrace technology to progress with their studies and graduate.
Zetech University, having shifted to online blended learning once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, enabled students to enjoy uninterrupted learning and supported students to secure and complete their industry attachments through collaborations with partners in various sectors. The Schools and Department Deans and Heads have been exceptional in walking with these students throughout their years of studies, as well as their last lap in virtual studies in the last few months.
According to the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Research, Extension and Student Affairs Dr. Alice Njuguna, this year’s graduation will celebrate the value of digital learning to support delivery of higher education in the country. “The beauty about a versatile student base is the flexibility to embrace technology for a more dynamic campus experience. Our first virtual graduation speaks of our commitment to leverage on technology to promote higher education and give our students an edge in the market.” said Dr. Njuguna, adding that the transition to online blended learning was a major success that challenged faculty and students to use smart devices and internet to progress and complete their studies.
This years’ ceremony will be broadcasted live on our social media pages: Facebook , Twitter , YouTube to allow the graduating class, their friends and family the pleasure of following the proceedings from the comfort of their homes.
For those graduating, details are captured on the graduation 2020 to help them enjoy a seamless journey to the big day.
