This survey focuses on:
We are particularly interested in the level and type of support that was provided to you by the institution and how we could improve this support for teaching staff.
If you are willing to share your experiences and thoughts, please complete the survey.
The survey will close on 30 June 2021. We will provide a report back to the UCT community on both the national and institutional outcomes. If you have any questions on the survey, please contact email@example.com.
