TAU 3 final session In Kwazulu Natal
The TAU 3 programme had its final contact session at the Karridene Hotel in Kwazulu Natal in June 2022. A highlight of this event was the superbly facilitated session on Community Engagement as an instrument of social change by Angela James (UKZN) with the help of Darren Lortan (DUT). Angela modelled for us how to ensure that all participants are fully engaged. Other highlights included the unveiling of the Enquiry Group Digital Artefacts (see the website) which replaced the traditional poster presentations. Guest reviewer Nic Theo (CPUT) gave wonderfully affirming and motivational feedback to the enquiry groups for their efforts. In their evaluation feedback TAU participants also hailed the mini-conference of TAU project reports as a huge success.
UKZN’s Jasper Cecil and his film crew provided us with the live streaming to ensure our TAU online colleagues were catered for. And no one is going to forget the flashmob after the braai dinner where the TAU team and participants (together with some hotel staff) enjoyed line dancing to the sounds of Brenda Fassie’s Vulindlela, the Makarena and Jerusalem. Another first for TAU – it can only get better from here!! What’s next? Look out for TAU 4, 5 and 6!!
