 The infusion of innovative teaching-and-learning practices

 
The Centre for Innovative Education and Communication Technologies (CIECT) positions itself within the context global transformation of higher education institutions (HEIs) in response to a wave of dynamic education sector reforms.

These include the adoption of educational technologies to enhance teaching-and-learning practices, education management, research and administration. This situation has placed a strain on HEIs in South Africa and elsewhere, due to changing societal expectations, the inevitable integration of technology, and specifically eLearning into traditional interventions; and at the same time, the increasing pressure on practitioners to deliver quality education. Equally important, the question arises whether Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is indeed constructively impacting teaching-and-learning practices. Consequently, a need has arisen for ePedagogy training and support for academics and students within challenging, complex HE settings.

The CIECT team regularly shares good innovative practices related to the affordances of eTools for teaching-and-learning; and assessment.
