On the 2nd of November 2011 Fundani and the Center for eLearning launched the first CPUT Teaching and Learning with Technology Day.
The day offered a packed programme including 3 key note speeches, 10 presentations, 3 open discussions, 3 workshops and show and tell sessions. One of the presentations was broadcasted to 40 academics via the SATN’s Elluminate platform, including participants from 4 other Universities of Technology and 3 of the Higher Colleges of Technology in the United Arabic Emirates.
Feedback was very positive:
