Goals of the Conference

  • To give SU lecturers the opportunity to share their best practice, research findings and innovative ideas about teaching and learning in post-graduate and undergraduate modules;
  • To provide a forum for reflection and debate about teaching and learning methods, trends and goals within the current context;
  • To provide an opportunity for the celebration of teaching and learning.

Who should attend

This conference is aimed at academics at Stellenbosch University with an interest in teaching and learning, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate levels.


Abstracts will be refereed by a panel and short-listed as possible award winners. Judges will attend the short-listed presentations and decide on an award-winning presentation, based on the originality and rigour of the work and the quality of the presentation.

The overall winner will be awarded a grant to participate in an overseas conference on learning and teaching.


As academic professionals, we value participation in scholarship, not because it is required or expected of us, but because it is a vital part of how we come to understand our world.
