Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede, has warned that university degrees may no longer be the sole guarantors of jobs now that the world has attained the Information Age.
Speaking at the Kwara State University (KWASU) 2023 convocation lecture, Oloyede assured that only demonstrable skills will.
Delivering the lecture titled: “Learning, Unlearning, and Relearning- Prerequisites of the Digital Age, Oloyede urged Nigerians to get poised for the challenges of the Information Age by taking lifelong learning seriously and being willing to change as circumstances unfold.
“For all, the imperative of learning, relearning and unlearning cannot be over-emphasized as the tonic that gives vitality to successful living in today’s Information Age. Those who can learn, unlearn and relearn are the successful ones, and those without the mindset that accommodates the triad are bound to perpetually lament,” Oloyede said.
Noting that learning is useless without practice, Oloyede, according to the RoyalTimes, defined relearning as the ability to acquire new skills, knowledge, and perspectives quickly and effectively.
