Currently the University of Pretoria presents five extended degree programs, mostly on the UP Mamelodi campus. Due to the intensive nature of these programs, faculty rarely have the opportunity to discuss teaching and learning and share their experiences among colleagues. The teaching and learning day aims to provide a dedicated time to facilitate communication and provide development opportunities. Stephen and Astrid enthusiastically shared their experience of using technology in their teaching to encourage greater student engagement.
Stephen and Astrid were invited to share their journey of their development and growth as teachers and as a teaching team with the participants of the University of Pretoria's Academic Staff Induction Program. Their presentation highlighted their shift to evidence-based teaching and the increasingly constructivist approach of their pedagogy.
