LAG 2019 Conference

Representing Sunyani Technical University was Dr. Edward Owusu, in his delivery, he argued that continuous assessments of Technical University University students should be made up of both pre- and post-test items; and that language teachers should record the post-test marks of students, instead.

LAG 2019 Conference

The Linguistics Association of Ghana (LAG), held its 12th Annual Conference dubbed LAG 2019 at The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa from Wednesday 31st to Friday 02, August 2019.

Delivering a keynote address, the President of the Association, Dr. Jemima Asabea Anderson (UG), called for a substantial use of local languages at home.

Dr. Edward Owusu (of Sunyani Technical University) presenting a paper on The Role of Written Corrective Feedback in Second Language Learners' Writing with Prof. Kofi Agyekum (UG), argued that continuous assessments of Technical University University students should be made up of both pre- and post-test items; and that language teachers should record the post-test marks of students, instead. This will encourage technical university students to experience a degree of success in their language assessments.

In an informal conversation with participants from STU and UNER, the President, encouraged them to form an LOC so that STU and UNER can jointly host the conference in two years' time. The mantle for the host of the 2020 edition went to UCC.

The participants came from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University; University of Education, Winneba; Bauchi State University, Nigeria; Tamale College of Education; University of Cape Coast; E. P. College of Education, Sunyani Technical University; KNUST; University of Ghana; Federal University Mafia, Nigeria; University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani; Texas A&M University, Kingsville; Valley View University; University of Mines and Technology; University of Nigeria, Nsukka; Ekiti State University, Ekiti State, Nigeria; The University of Hong Kong; Nasarawa State University, Keffi, Nigeria; Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria; The University of Bamenda, Cameroon; University of Jos, Jos, Nigeria; Accra College of Education; University of Frankfurt; Nigeria Police Academy; Abia State University, Nigeria; Durban University of Technology; Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Lagos State, Nigeria; University of Munster, Germany; University of Ibadan, Nigeria; Universite Ouaga, Burkina Faso; and Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
