CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOPS
1. The University hosted a Workshop on Developing the next Generation of researchers (Next Gen) in collaboration with the Association of Commonwealth Universities from 2 to 4 April 2019. The Workshop attracted over 200 early career academics from 34 institutions. Next Gen provides an opportunity for emerging reearchers to explore innovative approaches to professional development and support them to take the next step in their careers. Over three days, delegates learnt about international good practices in career and professional development planning for early career researchers. This includes how global best practices are being applied within Nigeria and hearing first-hand from rising academic stars from across the country about how they are forging ahead in their research careers. The Workshop also covered the benefits of professional development as a researcher, making the most of mentoring, research cooperation for early career researchers, professional development planning, research uptake – getting research into use, the mobile researcher in a global research environment and preparing to be an effective research leader.

28. JOINT MASTER DEGREE BETWEEN ARCIS AND UNIVERSITY OF PARIS, NANTERRE
Today, rapid and global developments in information science and technology continue to expand the global demand for human resources possessing ready-to-use practical skills in big-data related fields including business intelligence, data analytics, data mining, Natural Language Processing, data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. These fields are all oriented towards enhancing the harnessing and use of data, information and knowledge for improved decision making and action organizations and society.
In keeping up with these global trends, in March 2019, the University through the Africa Regional Centre for Information Science, one of the university’s centres of excellence signed a Five-Year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the University of Paris, Nanterre, France. The MOU covers exchanges of teachers and researchers, student exchanges, exploring the collaboration between teachers, collaboration in scientific research and publications.
The MOU put paid to the submission of a joint proposal between ARCIS, University of Ibadan and University of Paris, Nanterre to the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to fund the establishment of a joint postgraduate diploma in Natural Language Processing and master’s degree programme in Big Data Analytics. The programmes, which are to be domiciled in the University of Ibadan, aim at catering for the human resource gap in the two sub fields in Africa, support the development of French higher education in West and Central Africa and foster the exchange of faculty and students between the two universities.
The project proposal was approved by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is being funded through the Support for the Development of French Higher Education in Africa (ADESFA) Grant. The approval of the project forms one of the reasons for which His Excellency, the Ambassador of France to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Mr. PASQUIER JEROME visited this university on 22 May, 2019. Seed fund (€39,812) was approved for the curriculum design by faculty of ARCIS-UI, University of Paris, Nanterre, University of Paris, Nouvelle Sobourne and National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations (INALCO) Paris, France. The fund was released to University of Paris, Nanterre with the expectation that UI portion will be sent.
In furtherance of the cause of the collaboration, ARCIS, in July 2019 hosted the delegates from University of Nanterre who visited to hold meetings for discussions and working out of modalities for the proposed programme in Natural Language Processing. At the meeting representing ARCIS were: Director of ARCIS, Prof. W. M. Olatokun, Prof. M. A. Tiamiyu and Dr. Kemi Ogunsola; Representing University of Paris, Nanterre were: Prof. Sylvain Kahane, Université Paris Nanterre (Team Leader), Dr. Kim Gerdes and Marine Courtin, Université de la Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3, Paris, Dr. Slavomir Ceplo Austrian Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Elodie Apard, Director IFRA Nigeria in attendance. At the meeting, the two teams agreed on the content, structure and modalities of the proposed programme.
ARCIS Team visited University of Nanterre between 27 September and 7 October, 2019 to develop curricula for the programmes. On return from the visit, series of curriculum design meetings were held with representatives of the University’s Department of Linguistics and African Languages between December 2019 and January 2020. Currently, the curricula for the Postgraduate Diploma Natural Language Processing and Master of Science (Big Data Analytics) have been developed and awaiting approval by the Faculty of Multidisciplinary Studies, Postgraduate College and Senate. The PGD-NLP programme is proposed to commence in the 2019/2020 session to be jointly delivered by ARCIS and Department of Linguistics and African Languages.
