The 4 presenters, namely: Prof Michelle Esau (Dean); Fiona Anciano; Juliet Stoltenkamp; and Karen Dos Reis. The speakers focused on various topics that will be shared on the EMS website.
CIECT’s presentation focused on the design and development of a basic well-structured interactive environment, in relation to:
- Selection of eTools according to the discipline (topic);
- Pedagogical value of the eTool; and
- Authentic examples of the application by EMS lecturers [how the lecturers are making use of the eTools for content creation, communication and assessment].
The Director of CIECT thanked the lecturers across the EMS Faculty – who have engaged in online teaching and learning practices, for a long period of time (pre-#feesmustfall; and pre-covid-19). Hence EMS Faculty lecturers are continuing to build on their courses during this time. They contact the CIECT team for individual advisory and training sessions.
