The measuring of any university the world over is the quality of their graduates. Teaching methodology as well as research activities played a major role in these identified areas. The teaching methodology in Skyline University Nigeria not only played a major role in quality delivery of teaching and learning processes but also gave definition to the content of the knowledge being impacted on the students and in addition a necessary requirement to effectively impart knowledge, skills, and value-based education in the University.
The question of which teaching methodology is adopted by Skyline University Nigeria is no longer news as it implemented both, traditional and virtual teaching methodologies. Traditional classroom teaching methodologies have well been tested at the university campus. However, the implementation of virtual classrooms was new and high-tech. Yet they’re also pretty experimental when combined with traditional classroom teaching methodologies, which exposed students to the privilege of accessing course work from anywhere within their comfort zone while increasing their academic knowledge and digital skills.
The University is working with the NUC’s Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) and at par with global trends where universities based on their unique features are driving the development and implementation of the curriculum. Through her expert faculty and human resources, SUN is assembled to harmonize and review its teaching methodologies based on its robust contributions which would bring more impetus to Nigeria’s quest for national and international development.
Skyline University Nigeria recognized research activities and research-led teaching as the main responsibility of its faculty and has provided an enabling environment for teaching and research in various fields of academics. These developments are unique and comply with global standards in teaching, learning, and research. The University’s strategic mission reflects the emphasis on the importance of quality research.
In addition, they include activities that result in the creation of new knowledge and the expansion of existing knowledge in a way that it brings value to the community. Thereby, bringing the introduction of new knowledge, methodology, concepts, and understanding in the areas of analysis, medicine, synthesis, etc to the extent that it leads to a new discovery.
To support this goal, the University has incorporated the virtual release of the maiden issue of the International Journal of Business Review and Entrepreneurship (IJBRE) earlier in 2020. The IJBRE has soon served as a platform for the university to pride itself to explore new vistas of knowledge that add value to the existing body of knowledge. This forum has enabled researchers to actively participate in analyzing, evaluating, and solving the problems of society through their contributions.
The IJBRE has also gained acceptance and credibility in the International Academic Forums by enlisting in a minimum of five International Indexing organizations (such as GIF, ISI, Copernicus, Directory of Quality Factor & Open Access Journal, Cite factor, Cosmos, EBSCO). This has facilitated the IJBRE’s Journal abstracts listing and increase the citation ratings in Google Scholar and Research Gate.
