2020 Teaching and Learning with Technology Day

Date: Thursday, 26th of November 2020, 9.00-13.30
Location: online

Theme: Staff and student experiences of Remote Teaching and Learning during times of disruption – lessons learnt for an unknown future

COVID-19 has challenged institutions of higher learning to rethink the way they teach and how their students learn. CPUT like other institutions nationally and as mandated by government, adopted a multi-modal approach to teaching and learning using the carousel model in order to make sure that no student would be left behind. Over the last eight months, CPUT and its stakeholders gained invaluable experiences in supporting teaching and learning remotely. What were your experiences with RTL? What was made possible? What challenges did you encounter? In terms of student access? How did you handle security and privacy of student data? What inequalities were highlighted? How will these experiences impact on the future of higher education? Should we/can we go back to the way we taught before, or are we going to see more uptake of blended learning or fully online teaching and learning in the future?

The event will feature both staff and students’ reflection on their experiences with multi-modal learning during lockdown and suggest ways we can use the lessons learnt for planning for 2021 and beyond. They will share specific tools and technologies they used and specific pedagogical interventions that worked particularly well for their students’ teaching, learning and assessment.
