2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices

I went to a conference this morning on the Soweto Campus of UJ (The University of Johannesburg). The program had several leading educationalists from Finland sharing how their educational system works, and how South Africa is collaborating with them to improve our teaching. I was in the third row, only because the first two rows were reserved. Otherwise I’d have been in pole position as usual. Key takeouts from the sessions: 1. "We don’t trust steering, we trust learning." 2. Teachers in FInland are massively…Continue Reading “2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices”

FVPA — 2017-03-10 — Nondumiso Msimanga — Woza Albert

Last week Friday, Nondumiso Msimanga showed the first years in the Film, Visual, and Performing Arts lecture a screening of the live-filmed version of the play, WOZA ALBERT.

Sketchnoting 1st year lectures at Wits University. I’m tutoring first year students as part of my involvement in my Masters of Digital Arts degree this year.

So if you need me to get the delegates at your next event SUPER-ENGAGED with the material, let’s chat. Whatsapp is the most reliable way to get hold…Continue Reading “#Sketchnotes FVPA — 2017-03-04 — Stacey Vorster — The Gaze (with @MuholiZanele)”
