The Educational Technology Unit, Fundani CHED, has lined up an exciting series of workshops on the integration of innovative technologies in teaching and learning, from March to November 2010.
Local experts in the field from CPUT but also other Universities in the region, will present on their experiences on using much-talked about technologies, such as Mxit, Facebook, Google apps, OER, podcasts, or clickers in their teaching.
