Celebration of scholarships Connecting the lights

Across the Higher Education landscape, institutions are responding to shifts toward new ways of enhancing learning, teaching, assessment, and scholarship. Participate in this year’s HELTASA (Un)Conference by spotlighting your contextually relevant practices and scholarship. Shine a light on the learning and teaching experiences in higher education, digital transformation in higher education, scholarship in higher education, and higher education practices for changing times.

Load shedding, generators, and solar panels now feature in higher education planning, learning, and teaching. It is easy to focus on the many challenges and issues that may leave us feeling ‘in the dark’ but we want to celebrate the achievements and ways of moving forward. Connect with colleagues in dialogue to share lightbulb moments! Join the HELTASA project teams throughout the academic year as we build together in different pathways to our national event from 24 to 26 October 2023.

Is there ‘light at the end of the tunnel’? The North-West University (NWU) invites you to submit a proposal and register for the (Un)Conference! Let us spotlight the scholarly engagement of Southern African higher education practitioners and sustain the conversations at the HELTASA (Un)Conference 2023!
