CHE ICT Colloquium 2014 - Moving the Teaching and Learning System in South African Higher Education into the Digitally-Mediated Era

The Purpose of the Colloquium

The purpose of this Colloquium is to facilitate a national conversation to inform higher education policy development with respect to harnessing ICTs for improved teaching and learning in South Africa higher education system. The focus is on policy at both national and institutional level and the Colloquium will attempt to find ways to incorporate new technologies which have made their way into higher education (ICT, open learning, MOOCs, online courses and modes of teaching and learning) into the relevant policy frameworks.
While many conferences have focused on ICT and higher education, they have tended to emphasise the use of technology to support teaching practices, particularly in blended learning, which combines teaching methods from both face-to-face and online learning. This Colloquium is unique in its focus on the frameworks required to realise more fully the potential of digital developments in the sector as a whole.
