Technology Teaching and Workshops in the Faculty

The success of TED Talks has inspired us to develop faculty Teaching and Educating with Technology (TET) Talks. Monthly lunchtime sessions with short narratives and presentations about “ideas worth sharing”. This initiative gives educators, such as yourself, an opportunity to ask questions, share ideas and find out what others are doing.

Also, this could be an opportunity for you to take 5- 10 mins to share your ideas or experiences, talk about a new initiative, find out what resources are available or just bounce ideas off others. Please email Gregory.Doyle@uct.ac.za if you wish to do a mini presentation.

Past TET Talks

In the faculty we run regular “Show and Tell” sessions. Teaching staff are provided a platform to showcase what is happening in their classroom, whether it be a new technology, innovative use of old technologies, or lessons they have learned from trying something new. Often, we don’t know what is happening in other departments and units; through these sessions, we are hoping to promote good ideas and share what resources are available in the faculty.

This event was held on 27th of October in PG Seminar Room 2, Barnard Fuller Building from 12:55 – 14:00. Our presenters and topics were:
