UHS produces first batch of certified medical teachers
Lahore: The University of Health Sciences (UHS) has produced the first batch of 22 certified medical teachers.

The certificate course in medical teaching was launched by the UHS last year under the International Strategic Partnership in Research and Education (Inspire) project sponsored by the British Council.

The facilitators from the University of Liverpool, UK, trained participants in the course which were selected from various medical colleges of Punjab.

Addressing the certificate distribution ceremony on Thursday, British Council Regional Director Richard Weyers said the Inspire project aimed at strengthening the academic and research partnership between the UK and Pakistan.

He said currently 10 partnerships were running successfully across Pakistan. Moreover, 17 partnerships had been initiated under the second round of the project, in a variety of subject areas ranging from health and environment to energy and education, he said.

UHS Vice-Chancellor Maj-Gen Prof Muhammad Aslam (retired) said the university had over 42 affiliated medical and dental colleges.

"Over 24 colleges have departments dedicated to medical education, but they realise that they lack the latest knowledge and skills required for efficient practice. Hence, the university is collaborating with the University of Liverpool under the Inspire banner, to develop an innovative and sustainable project aimed to increase efficiency, basic knowledge and skills of medical teachers," he said.

UHS's Centre of Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) Director Prof Arif Rashid Khwaja, who is coordinator of the programme, said the course was taught on campus in two sessions. Between the teaching sessions, the students carried out a series of activities at their workplace and gathered evidence of their teaching practice.

The topics covered in the course included learning process of students, planning and delivering lectures to large and small groups, principles of assessment, and evaluation and innovation.

Medical educationists Dr Ian Willis and Dr Janet Strivens from the University of Liverpool also spoke.

GCUF female teachers booked
Faisalabad: In an extreme step, the Government College University administration has got registered a case against its female teachers for 'ransacking' the varsity property and on some other charges that seem petty.

The female teachers of different varsity departments, including mathematics, Urdu and physics, had been staging demonstrations outside the university for the last three days to protest sacking of some of their colleagues.

The agitators said the varsity had shown the door to several teachers who had been serving the institution for years instead of renewing their contracts. They also alleged that the teachers were sacked to accommodate some blue-eyed candidates.

On Wednesday, the teachers again protested against the varsity administration demanding Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif take notice of the 'injustice' done to them.

This time, Gulberg police registered a case against about 60 people, including five protesting teachers Shakeela Sham, Tayyaba Nighat, Nasreen Siddique, Razia Sultan and Saima who were nominated.

The teachers have been booked under sections 148, 149, 186 and 290 of the PPC with no arrest so far.

The case was registered on the complaint of Talib Hussain, a shift commander of the GCUF security.

According to the complainant, the accused teachers on Monday gathered outside the gate No 2 of the varsity and staged a protest demonstration.

"They tried to enter the university and misbehaved with the guards and stopped them from performing their duty," the complainant said.

The protesters also blocked traffic, entrance to the university and continued 'violent' protest for more than 4-5 hours, he said, adding they forced their entry into the university and ransacked its property and created problems for the students.

Responding to the case registration, the accused teachers said their agitation was peaceful, denying they caused any damage to the varsity property. Dawn
