Read time: 2 mins
Robust conversations ensued during the University of Fort Hare’s 2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Breakfast. Information sharing was key in keeping up-to-date with the changing needs in the Higher Education space.
Launched last year, the session organized by the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) brings together academics on a platform to engage in academic support services offered at the university that seek to advance teaching and learning at Fort Hare and how to utilize those services.
The programme included presentations on initiatives that seek to promote student and staff development. It also featured a presentation on Technology-enhanced Learning (TeL).
On the side of the formal discourse held at the Staff Centre on the Alice Campus, was the TLC exhibition that presented a hive of activity on Freedom Square.
The exhibitors comprised various departments and units at the University who set up stalls to display the array of services they offer. These included Institutional Advancement, Library Services, the Student Counselling Unit, the Disability Unit, Student Wellness, the Health Care Centre, the Student Campus Ministry, the Department of Postgraduate Studies, and the Innovation Office.
UFH Crop Science Lecturer, Dr Silindile Miya who was among the academics who joined the session said the roundtable discussion was enlightening and vital, especially for academics new to the University.
Ms Grace Tshivhandekano, a New Generation of Academics Programme (nGAP) Lecturer at the Department of Zoology and Entomology said the gathering allowed academics and students and academics to engage in meaningful conversations.
The programme will move to the East London campus tomorrow, Thursday.
