The Faculty of Education recently announced the commencement of a mutual reciprocity collaboration between the faculty academics, students, and Chandigarh University in India.

Clive Brown from the Intermediate Phase at Mowbray Campus said in an era marked by interconnectedness and globalisation, universities worldwide increasingly recognise the value of international collaboration in advancing academic pursuits and nurturing a diverse, inclusive learning environment.

Brown said the CPUT visit to Chandigarh University earlier this year, served as the catalyst for a burgeoning partnership aimed at bridging geographical boundaries and harnessing the collective expertise of educators and learners from diverse cultural backgrounds.”

Dean of the Faculty of Education, Prof Andile Mji, thanked the colleagues from India for being caring hosts to Dr Rolene Liebenberg, Dr Sharon McAuliffe, and Prof Hanlie Dippenaar during their international visit to India.

Brown said developing a transnational collaboration between CPUT and Chandigarh University holds immense importance in fostering global academic exchange and synergy. “Such collaboration can enrich educational experiences by offering diverse perspectives, methodologies, and cultural insights to students and faculty alike. It facilitates the sharing of resources, expertise, and research findings, enhancing the quality and depth of academic programmes and research endeavours.”

He added that transnational collaboration opens avenues for joint projects and initiatives, fostering innovation and addressing complex global challenges through collective efforts. By leveraging the strengths of both institutions, “we can embark on interdisciplinary research endeavours that transcend geographical boundaries and contribute to the advancement of knowledge on a global scale.

This collaboration cultivates a network of international scholars, graduates, and professionals, promoting cross-cultural understanding and facilitating the exchange of ideas and best practices. “Through meaningful engagement and collaboration, we can collectively work towards building a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future for education worldwide.

“This partnership underscores the mutual reciprocity between the two countries and institutions in advancing research across transnational spaces. Together, we embark on a journey of discovery, learning, and collaboration that transcends borders and enriches the academic landscape for generations to come.”
