The recent UCDP grant awarded to TAU requires that we deliver the TAU programme twice in the course of three years (2021-2023). We have therefore issued a call for nominations to all public universities for the fourth cycle of the programme (TAU 4) starting in 2022 with the first contact session in July 2022.

Institutions are asked to nominate their TAU participants and to link their nomination to one or more of their UCDP funded or strategic Teaching and Learning projects. In this way, we hope, TAU participants and their projects will become part of their institutional strategic planning around Teaching and Learning and contribute to their institutional goals.

Nominees should be employed at a South African public higher education institution (permanent and full time), with academic or professional status;

  • Nominees should preferably be Faculty-based middle or senior level academics, but may also be based in middle or senior level academic support or development positions;
  • Nominees should have 10 years or more experience of teaching in higher education;
  • They should preferably have been involved in the development and implementation of an educational project addressing shortcomings in teaching in some way;
  • They should be willing to share their experiences and engage in capacity building.
