 Innovative Practices

The CIECT team and its niche areas represent a systemic view of the integration of innovative practices and research. CIECT’s activities reach beyond the provision of training workshops and are indicative of systemic, reiterative processes and approaches related to the areas of Learning-and-Teaching; Research; Community Engagement and Collaboration. 

Innovative Learning-and-Teaching practices are regularly shared via blogs about the use of various eTools and its pedagogical value. Examples of these innovative practices related to the affordances of the eTools are available within CIECT’s blog space. Visit the site to view all posts:

 The CIECT team also hosts an Annual Colloquium whereby users (lecturers and external partners) have the opportunity to present their online environments with the campus community. This leads to lively discourse related to effective teaching-and-learning; use of eTools to supplement conventional instructional practices; access and challenges. Moreover, some presenters proceed to share their work at local and international conferences. View the latest colloquium presentations on CIECT’s YouTube Channel.

This 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.​​​​​​​
