The popular ECP classroom Fika’s will start-up again in the new academic term. The first of these informal and conversational get-together’s for 2016 – where classroom and teaching practices are the main topic of discussion – will take place in April on both the Bellville and Cape Town campuses. ECP lecturer Bruce McKenzie will share his recent analysis of ECP student performance in Nature Conservation.
The visits to 10 ECP departments during February provided a gratifying opportunity for staff from the Fundani ECP unit and ECP lecturers and coordinators to have frank conversations and share both the joys and pains of their ECP work. While not all the questions posed could be answered, or all the problems raised solved – there was a shared appreciation of the space for dialogue which these visit initiated.
