PROWIBO’s short course at the African Rural University (ARU) is halfway through its final week. Please enjoy this video diary from Rachel, where she introduces us to Joice Magezi Semakulla and Byaruhanga George William, who are Traditional Wisdom Specialists working at ARU!
Aside from offering its students traditional lecturers, ARU also provides them with Traditional Wisdom Specialists, who are repositories of traditional knowledge, skills, and technologies. In Rachel’s video, we are introduced to Joice Magezi Semakulla and Byaruhanga George William. They talk about their roles within the university, which includes integrating traditional wisdom into the curriculum and teaching practices and handling appropriate technology at ARU. Their presence at the university is aimed at blending knowledge and wisdom from conventional academics and traditional specialists.
