For almost 20 years TSF has supported the highly successful Education Development Unit at the UCT Commerce Faculty, which looked at the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning. This included ensuring adequate staffing, resourcing and intellectual development of teaching and learning work; supporting the scholarship of teaching and learning; improving curriculum development skills and teaching practice skills; using technology to support teaching; and improving teaching infrastructure.
The UCT EDU unit has provided supportive conditions for students throughout their degree, the environment focused on enhancing and developing the learning experience, improving academic success, cultivating broad graduate attributes and qualities, and providing students with a range of value-added components. And to capture the lessons learned on the journey of, Proff Pym authored a book Exploring Possibilities that can be purchased on Amazon here.
Finally, much to our delight, the methods and lessons learned on this journey are now being utilised within the National ISFAP program to support students to improve their chances of success within the University system.
