Makerere University School of Education together with its Department of Humanities and Language Education celebrates the PhD defences of two intelligent academic staff Dr. Muhindo Eliab and Dr. Jjingo Caesar who recently defended their PhD defences from respective universities.

On 29th October 2018, Prof Bwanika Mathias Mulumba, the Department chair revealed that the department received good news from the University of Dar es Salaam that Mr. Muhindo Eliab (and now Dr. Muhindo Eliab) successfully defended his PhD. He further stated that this is yet another academic achievement from the Department of Humanities and Language Education, School of Education, CEES and Makerere University. We sincerely congratulate Dr. Muhindo upon this well deserved achievement and wish him the best in all his future academic and professional endeavours.

Also On 21st November 2018, the Chair Department of Humanities and Language Education, Associate Professor Mathias Mulumba (PhD) revealed that good news from South Africa (University of Stellenbosch) indicated that Mr. jjingo Caesar (now Dr. Jjingo) assistant Lecture from his department had successfully defended his PhD.  I quote what he said “Dear colleagues, I have received good news from South Africa (University of Stellenbosch). Mr. jjingo Caesar (now Dr. Jjingo) successfully defended his PhD and will graduate on 13th Dec 2018. This is the second PhD attained by an academic member of staff from the department this year (2018). We sincerely congratulate Dr. Jjingo and wish him the best in his entire future academic and professional career.”

The title of Mr. Jjingo Caesar (now Dr. Jjingo) study was “COGNITIVE TASK ANALYSIS IN TASK-BASED SYLLABUS DESIGN FOR THE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF KISWAHILI AS A SECOND LANGUAGE IN UGANDAN SECONDARY SCHOOLS”.  The genesis of his theoretically informed dissertation was motivated by researcher’s need to explore both available and suitable conventional teaching and learning practices that are globally accepted with the aim of utilising them in Kiswahili L2 teacher-training at the School of Education, Makerere University, Uganda.

All the above PhD defences were followed by very big number of congratulatory messages from staff in the college wishing them the success upon that well deserved achievement in their academic careers
