The HELTASA Digital Learning and Teaching Project Team will be hosting the first digital dialogue in Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 25 May 12:00 – 13:30. We invite you to participate in an informal, facilitated cross-institutional dialogue where we will discuss the what, why and how of digital learning at our South African universities. While some universities have a full or semi return to on-campus teaching and learning, others continue to teach remotely or have expanded face-to-face teaching with simultaneous online learning opportunities, making use of hybrid approaches such as hyflex. We invite you to join us and discuss:

  • What is happening at your institution?
  • Why has the institution gone this route?
  • How is teaching and learning happening – are there any particular pedagogical approaches that are being encouraged at your institution?
  • What are the challenges being experienced right now?

This digital dialogue also serves as the launch of the HELTASA Digital Learning and Teaching Project Team. These informal lunchtime sessions aim to stimulate discussion about all matters linked to digital learning and teaching within the South African higher education context. Join as we start to establish a community of practice around digital learning and teaching. No matter if you are an academic, an educational developer, an instructional designer or have some other role, if you are interested in digital learning and teaching approaches, including online, blended and many others, we would like to hear from you.
