Emeritus Professor, Ian Scott has written a series of articles for the Mail & Guardian about issues in Basic and Higher Education in South Africa: "Without success, access will fail", "No quick fix for university crisis", and "Core issues besides finance and access hinder students' success".
Since the student protests of 2015 and 2016, UCT, like many other universities in South Africa, has been grappling with the conceptual understanding of a “decolonised curriculum”. The Curriculum Change Working Group (CCWG), appointed by the VC in 2016, has facilitated various engagements across the campus on different curriculum approaches to develop responses to the calls for “decolonisation” and “transformation” in HE.
It is against this backdrop and in keeping with the intention of UCT’s Strategic Planning Framework that the CHED Transformation Committee decided to embark on a series of participatory conversations on the urgent topic of Decolonisation of the Curriculum in CHED.
"MOOCs are close to my heart" UCT's Vice-Chancellor, Dr Max Price, told guests at the launch of CHED's first MOOC.
Hosted by the Department of Health Sciences Education, this year’s 9th Annual CHSE Conference was a space to engage with both innovative practice and research being done in the Faculty.
