Grand Finalé of the TAU Fellowships Programme
14 – 19 July saw the grand finale of the Teaching Advancement at University (TAU) Fellowships Programme which took place at the Karridene Hotel, Durban.
The 50 candidates – academics committed to teaching and learning at 20 South African higher education institutions – engaged with each other about the scholarship of teaching and learning, teaching excellence and change and transformation over a period of 13 months. They have all achieved the requirements of the programme:
- managed an individual project
- participated in all the face to face and online learning activities
- contributed to an enquiry group process and report
- and are now officially “TAU Fellows”
The reports of their individual investigations and more details about the cohort are available on this site. The next TAU programme should be advertised via Deputy Vice Chancellors at all South African public higher education institutions during the first half of 2017. Here are some comments on the TAU experience by TAU Fellows:
