'Towards continuous innovation and excellence in Open Distance teaching and learning'
Our highly qualified staff members are here to help lecturers develop educationally sound learning experiences and environments for our students relative to the open and distance learning (ODL) context. We specialize in curriculum development, instructional design and learning development, and believe in engaged learning. We offer continuing professional learning (CPL) to lecturers related to teaching, learning and assessment, and writing for ODL. We are knowledgeable about the legislative environment and can offer training or coaching on topics such as outcomes-based education. We also conduct research into ODL and are happy to work together with lecturers on joint research projects related to the teaching, learning and assessments of their modules or programmes. We also edit the oldest distance education journal in Africa, Progressio
