Determined to break new grounds in giving education its pride of place in national and regional development, the Media and Publishing Division of Debb Gosean Ltd (MPD/DGL) has launched its online newspaper “the Chronicle of Education”.
The Chronicle of Education, according to its promoters, is thematically focused on education at all levels (pre-tertiary and tertiary) in Nigeria, with the goal of putting education squarely in the forefront of national development.
To this end, the broad objective of “the Chronicle of Education” is to be a platform for generating and disseminating cutting-edge ideas for remodelling, repositioning, enhancing and advancing the entire Nigerian education system, in order to enable education to continually play its rightful role as the foremost agent for accelerated national and regional development.
The newspaper’s cloud-based website is: www.thechronicleofeducation.com, which is ubiquitously accessible on mobile/immobile computing devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops.
The vision of The Chronicle of Education is to be the foremost publication on education matters in Nigeria and its mission is to continually map the changing Nigerian and African education landscape, with the objective of accurately depicting its full potential and dynamics, through publishing national, regional and global education news, reports, analyses, assessments, documentaries, opinions, discussions and blogs that are distinguished by their quality, relevance, creativity, objectivity and exemplary capacity to foster national and regional progress.
The Chronicle of Education will therefore be the foremost platform where the diverse groups of stakeholders, whether locally based or in the Diaspora, of the Nigerian education system can freely proffer innovative and constructive solutions to the myriads of challenges in the system.
Accordingly, pupils, students, press organizations, public relations offices of educational institutions, scholars, teachers, non-teaching staff, parents, governments, the private sector, national/international non-governmental organizations, women groups, Nigerians in the Diaspora and the entire Nigerian society are welcome to continually submit education news, reports, analyses, assessments, documentaries, opinions, discussions and blogs for editorial consideration and publication.
Contributions in the forms of national, regional and global education news, reports, analyses, assessments, documentaries, opinions, discussions and blogs are welcome at all times on a diversity of topics, issues and challenges, such as teaching, student learning, student performance in public and institutional examinations, teacher training and continuous capacity building, modes of curriculum delivery (face-to-face and distance learning), quality assurance, research and innovation, internationalization and indigenous knowledge systems. The Chronicle of Education especially welcomes contributions dealing with gender perspectives, issues and challenges at all levels of the Nigerian education system. Prospective contributors should visit:www.thechronicleofeducation.com/contribute.
The Chronicle of Education also offers all stakeholders and its entire readership the opportunity to author BLOGS, and/or be COLUMNISTS writing, on themes and topics on education at all levels in Nigeria. There are also discussion FORUMS where vibrant, enlightening and problem-solving interactions take place, offering diverse platforms for all stakeholders, particularly students, student press organizations, public relations offices of educational institutions, teachers, parents, governments, and the private sector, to express their views on pertinent educational issues.
Finally, in view of its global readership, The Chronicle of Education is a veritable medium for advertising products, services, jobs, book reviews, exhibitions and other announcements by educational institutions, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, governments and all stakeholders in education.
