  • Registration open for the 2018 CPUT Teaching and Learning with Technology Day: 24 August 2018 (Friday, 22 June 2018)

    Dear colleagues, 

    Registration for the 6th CPUT Teaching and Learning with Technology Day is now open!

    Date: Friday, 24 August 2018, 9:00 - 15:30 

    Location: SARETEC

    Theme: Blended Learning at CPUT

    Conference theme

    Blending teaching, learning and assessment is a complex process that involves the development and delivery of engaging learning material, the creation of online activities to engage students, facilitation and support of online learning, online course management, and the practice of online assessment. In the context of CPUT, we define blended learning as a mix of face-to-face and online learning, depending on context, learners and content. Blended learning can accommodate a variety of learning experiences both on- and off-campus, with a varying amount of ‘distance’ between learners and lecturers. While CPUT is inherently a contact institution, it faces an increasing need to incorporate a blended educational model to adapt to changing (and often unpredictable) times.

    Programme

    The day will feature keynotes, presentations and workshops. This year there is a strong focus on how to use tools and technologies to provide a more flexible, context-sensitive and meaningful teaching and learning space for our students.  Dr Carel Oosthuizen from the Department for Zoology & Entomology from the University of Pretoria will share his experiences with using blended learning during the #FMF protests, while Dr Faiq Waghid from CIET will share guidelines for planning blended learning at CPUT. Individual presentations will range from using mobile apps such as Flipgrid to improve student engagement,  webinars to help establish distance learners' sense of community, digital storytelling to allow students' voices into the classroom, Blackboard tools to help support a mixed-ability class or wikis to facilitate student-generated content.
