For the 2018 conference, Stellenbosch University staff members are invited to submit abstracts on aspects of teaching and learning in higher education, i.e. undergraduate education, postgraduate education and continuing professional development.

You may want to share your experiences of trying out something new or innovative in your teaching or assessment practice. Did it work or not? Perhaps you’ve conducted a large-scale needs analysis related to your teaching, or you’ve discovered something interesting while analysing the results of your students’ assessment. Have you explored a teaching-related aspect in collaboration with other colleagues in your department or faculty, or even across disciplinary boundaries? Have you conducted research on your teaching or assessment? Or perhaps you have some new ideas that you would like to discuss.

Come and share your passion, your news and your results with us in a presentation, a panel discussion or as a poster, so that we can all learn together and make teaching at SU the best it can be.

Writing the abstract

Have a look at Creating a research space (the CARS model), which provides an overview of steps to follow when doing educational research – this could assist you in writing your abstract. You may also contact the CTL Advisor in your faculty for assistance.

The abstract should consist of 300 words minimum and 350 words maximum. The deadline for submitting abstracts is 6 August 2018, and we will let you know by 22 September 2018 whether your abstract has been accepted.
