The annual University of Cape Town (UCT) Teaching and Learning Conference will take place both virtually and in-person after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference provides an opportunity for UCT staff and students to reflect, connect and envision a way forward in a more socially just teaching and learning environment. The focus of this year’s Teaching and Learning Conference is “Vision 2030 and a socially just teaching and learning environment at UCT”.
UCT’s Vision 2030 has a transformative purpose to “unleash human potential to create a fair and just society”. Critically reviewing the UCT teaching and learning landscape, along with curriculum change (transformation and decolonisation), curriculum renewal and reform, teaching and learning innovations and digital modes of provision, is core to transforming and supporting the systems that enable and sustain this work at UCT. Exploring challenges related to improving the student and staff experience is also critical.
The TLC2022 programme will provide insights into strategies for evolving the teaching and learning landscape at UCT, with a focus on addressing the transformation agenda outlined in Vision 2030. Keynote addresses will be delivered by Associate Professor Kasturi Behari-Leak, the dean of the Centre for Higher Education Development at UCT; and Professor Mpine Makoe, Commonwealth of Learning Chair in Open Education Practices/Resources and acting executive dean in the College of Education at the University of South Africa.
Dates: 25 October (in-person) and 27 October (virtual)
