We are excited to be piloting a range of new learning tools in 2021: Hypothes.is, Wooclap, Padlet and Gradescope. Join our new learning tools webinar series in February to find out how you can use these tools in your course.
CILT offers a range of support services; from resource guides, to individual consultations, to workshops. Choose a suitable support service where we will help you with your course design challenges and advise about the use of Vula.
Welcome to 2021! We are committed to working with UCT staff to support teaching and learning and the particular challenges imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. For the First Semester of 2021 UCT has adopted Physically Distanced Learning (PDL) - which combines online teaching and learning with selected forms of face-to-face teaching under physical distancing.
A key difference between PDL and Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) is that there is a greater variety of teaching modalities including online synchronous and in-person teaching as many students will be back in residences, have limited access to campus facilities and internet connectivity. Despite these options and more time for course design, given the continuing uncertainty of the pandemic, we are promoting resilient course design which encourages online by default and in-person where feasible.
CILT offers a range of practical support and learning design services. Our practical support services can help you implement and troubleshoot issues with specific Vula tools. Our learning design services help you think about the design of your course, talk through teaching challenges, and advise about the use of Vula for effective learning. There are a number of options depending on whether you prefer to consult relevant documentation, talk to a helpful colleague or join a group of colleagues grappling with similar issues.
