The Institute for Educational Planning and Administration of the University of Cape Coast has held a student research and innovation Expo 2018.

This year’s expo which is on the theme, Innovation in Education for graduates who are called to lead, afforded graduate students of the institute to showcase their creative ideas as well as research findings in key strategic areas of their academic interest.

Some of the areas that were considered in the research were on the free senior high school and its implementation policies, security on UCC campus, and impact of IEPA alumni towards nation building among others.

Some renowned Journalists in the Central Region are encouraging the general public to openly volunteer information to enable journalists articulate concerns and views from the general public; rather than focusing primarily on championing the views and interests of people in positions of power.

The call was made during a special discussion programme on ATLFM to mark World Press Freedom Day on Thursday May 3, 2018. Mary Ama Bawa of ATL FM hosted Nana Boadu of Radio Central, Shirley Asiedu Addo Central Regional Senior reporter of Graphic Communications Group, David Yarboi - Tetteh Central Regional reporter of the Ghanaian Times, Samuel Nana Effah Obeng of Ocean One Television and Christian Baidoo of ATL FM News.
