HUB organises with Associate Professor Kasturi Behari-Leak of the Centre for Higher Education Development at UCT a short course for its staff on educational theories and pedagogies to become more effective educators to our students and mentors of teaching practices to our next-generation educators.

The short course provides a collegial space to debate, discuss and strategize around issues that academics identify as their key challenges. In a small group, academics are encouraged to work together to improve the professional practice of postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows with regards to teaching and learning in the context of higher education teaching and learning. The course also creates a robust space for critical discussions on the dynamics of teaching in a transforming and diverse higher education classroom.
