You are here: Home» Blog» TSiBA 5th Annual Curriculum Review

On Wednesday 5 October the academic team met with Ian Scott, Jeff Jawitz and Kevin Williams of UCT, including Keith Long the Headmaster of Rhodes High, to debate the assumptions we make in curriculum construction. We left with some great insights which fed really well into the the theme for the curriculum review on 6 September: Student Workload and Assignment Integration.

Dr Shadrick Mazaza opened the session with a thought provoking talk on Consciousness and Personal Transformation. Here is the link to the podcast. here In a nutshell the outcomes of the two sessions have emphasised the need to accelerate our move towards incorporating 21st century learning and teaching skills into our curriculum.

We now have two main focus areas for our curriculum construction: (1) integration of content knowledge and skills across disciplines; and (2) incorporating ICT’s for education into the mix for both pre- and post-lecture material and student assignments.  The podcast above demonstrates our experimentation with this technology.

2013 is going to be a fun year for us!
