Welcome to TLC2019!

In the face of myriad and sometimes contradictory requirements of universities, rooted in complex, local and global phenomena, universities are challenged to re-imagine their role in society (Leibowitz, 2017). Educators within universities, particularly, are required by the context to consider carefully what they teach, who they are teaching, and what impact their students’ learning is likely to have on the society to which they belong. With this context and the changing roles of the university in mind, the theme for this year’s Teaching and Learning Conference at UCT is “Re-imagining higher education: Teaching and learning for a changing world”
