In her opening remarks, Chancelle Bilampassi Moutsatsi, PAU Rectorate Communication Officer, recalled that the website (https://pau-au.africa) was built with GIZ support, in line with the PAU Communication Strategy which underscored the need to forge a unified identity for the university.
Participants therefore reflected on the best ways to harmonize their workflows to produce more content to suit the public’s demand and uplift the website’s attractiveness.
The website, which is more user-friendly, comprehensive and integrative as it gathers the pages of each PAU institute, will hopefully attract a high calibre of students, scholars, researchers, lecturers and potential partners within and beyond Africa, including qualified women and people with disabilities.
This workshop is one step towards achieving the PAU’s vision, namely shaping an African excellence through well-designed academic and research programmes, and desmontrating their ultimate benefits to Africa’s development.
Communications and IT officers, who came from Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Algeria and Cameroon, felt satisfied with the quality of the training, and pledged to help build the university’s reputation.
