New course on improving teaching

26 May 2008

UCT will be offering a short course aimed at senior lecturers who want to hone their teaching skills.

The course is offered by the Higher and Adult Education Studies and Development Unit (HAESDU) of the Centre for Higher Education and Development (CHED). It will consist of individual consultations, a series of lunchtime seminars, and observations on teaching.

"We noticed that there was not much support for experienced lecturers who want help in improving their teaching," explains Dr Jeff Jawitz of HAESDU.

The Short Course on Teaching will be designed around the individual needs of lecturers.

"We expect them to tell us what goals they want to achieve and the course will be shaped around their intended objectives," says Jawitz.

At the end of the course, participants will write a report to assess their development and review their teaching in response to the challenges and concerns they have identified.

The Short Course on Teaching will take a maximum of 12 participants, and starts in the second semester.
