University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, has authenticated its advocacy for globalization by taking giant steps toward digitalization.
According to Guardian Newspaper, the Deputy Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Folashade Ogunsola made this known when the institution hosted the second Lagos Summer School in Digital Humanities which was attended by delegates from the Institute for Digital Humanities, Historical and Cultural Information, University of Cologne, Germany.
“The Vice Chancellor is making sure that students are exposed to the culture of research and international collaboration to aid development in the university, hence this initiative,” the DVC said.
Oyvind Eide, a Prof. of Digital Humanities at the University of Cologue, said digitalization is a continuous process of traditional sub consciousness and presentation in oral and print systems from all parts.
“It is important to have an institutional, governmental, regional and international cooperation in preserving information at the professional level for the sake of saving humanity, and for communities, family and individuals to take responsibility of maintaining research information while being conscious of their heritage and values,” the Prof said.
