Sign up for the next RADC webinar

15 May 2023

Dear students

The 2023 Residence Academic Development Committee (RADC) webinar series has begun! The RADC’s subcommittee on funding created the webinar series in 2020 to provide resident students with academic and psychosocial assistance throughout the lockdown. The space has since become one where presenters share their knowledge, experience and wisdom with students, and has grown to be a popular online learning community.

In preparation for the demanding exam season ahead, students are urged to register for and take part in the first online seminar of the year. This will be held on 17 May 2023 from 13:00 to 14:00 via Microsoft Teams.

The speaker, Ms Isabella Sinn from the UCT Centre for Higher Education Development, will discuss the topic “Exam planning: strategies for academic reading and exam preparation – how to approach an academic reading, and how to break down exam questions and plan for an essay task.”

As an essential tool in preparation for the forthcoming examination season, the online seminar series aims to provide support and relevant guidance for UCT students, not limited to those living in residences. Students will benefit much from this chance to study under seasoned experts and raise their academic standards.

This is the first of a number of planned webinars in this series. Further details on upcoming RADC webinars will be shared in later campus communication.

For any queries, please contact Maria Kimotho.

The University of Cape Town’s RADC is chaired by Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Transformation, Student Affairs and Social Responsiveness, Professor Elelwani Ramugondo. It comprises faculty deans' nominees and Department of Student Affairs management, with students represented by the SRC and Academic Representative Council.

The RADC is grounded in a collaboration protocol between residences and faculties. The purpose of the ‘living and learning’ projects such as the RADC webinars is to further establish a way of bridging the gap between faculties and residences to foster student success and provide a quality academic experience to students living in residence.

The RADC is acknowledged for every effort put in to assist students academically and for including them as part of the UCT ‘living and learning’ projects.
