CIECT Annual Report 2014This report provides an overview of CIECT’s activities, promoting the infusion of emerging technologies at UWC. A framework is presented which deliberates CIECT’s impact within the areas of Teaching-and-Learning; Research; Community Engagement and Collaboration. These key areas are underpinned by the alignment of activities (current and future) with the Institutional Operating Plan (IOP) of the University; and other national policies (e.g. National Development Plan/ NDP). The research and application of innovative, emerging technologies are supported by the implementation of an integrated team structure. Daily operations are aligned to research; which is evidence-based and measurable.
