Stellenbosch University staff are cordially invited to submit abstracts on aspects of teaching and learning in higher education i.e. undergraduate education, postgraduate education and continuing professional development.
Closing date for abstracts: Friday, 22 August 2014
You may want to share your experiences of trying out something new or innovative in your teaching or assessment practice. Did it work or not? Perhaps you've conducted a large-scale needs analysis related to your teaching or you've discovered something interesting when analysing the results of your students' assessment! Have you conducted research on your teaching or assessment or perhaps you have some new ideas that you would like to discuss? Come and share your passion, your news and your results with us in a presentation, a panel or as a poster, so that we can all learn together and make teaching at SU the best it can be.
