Kibbie Naidoo (TAU Project Convener)
Welcome to TAU 2021
I hope that you have all had a gentle start to 2021. On behalf of the TAU OpsCom, I want to welcome you and wish you all a safe and happy year. We are pleased to announce the appointment of Emeritus Associate Professor Jeff Jawitz as the new manager for the TAU programme. He has been extensively involved in TAU as an advisor and member of the OpsCom since the programme began. He brings a wealth of experience to this position and TAU we are lucky to have him on board. He takes over the helm from Prof Elizabeth de Kadt. We also want to take this opportunity to thank Elizabeth for her sterling work as manager of the TAU programme.
Jeff Jawitz is an Emeritus Associate Professor in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) at the University of Cape Town. The new TAU online platform is being developed in collaboration with CILT and will use UCTs VULA learning management system.
We are looking forward to meeting our 53 new participants at the start of TAU 3 in July 2021.
Kibbie Naidoo is supported by a TAU operations committee (OpsCom) including; Prof Jawitz (Project manager), Mrs Hellen Agumba (Project administrator), Prof Elizabeth de Kadt, Dr Rejoice Nsibande and Dr Amanda Hlengwa.
