Drs Lynn Biggs and Jacqui Luck have been selected as recipients of the prestigious Teaching Advancement at University (TAU) Fellowship for 2018.

The aim of this fellowship is to contribute the enhancement of teaching and learning in higher education in South Africa by supporting the development of a cadre of academics across institutions and disciplines as scholars, leaders and mentors in their fields.

The Higher Learning and Teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA) offers the Fellowship “for experienced academics who have been acknowledged for their teaching excellence and who wish to further extend their knowledge about teaching within a supportive and collegial environment.

Dr Biggs has devoted countless hours over the past few years towards assisting her Faculty to be at the forefront of teaching and learning developments, also in relation to assessments, decolonisation and transformation of the curriculum.  

Dr Jacqui Luck lecturer in Applied Language Studies says “This fellowship will allow me to deepen my understanding of my role (and those of others) in higher education teaching and learning. It is indeed an exciting opportunity and one which I embrace whole-heartedly. I hope to gain deeper insights into current trends in teaching and learning in higher education. The engagement with fellow TAU participants will give me a broader picture of what is happening in the sector”.

“The fellowship will also help me engage with my own grapplings with teaching and learning and concerns which range from unpacking and understanding the complexities of teaching and learning, leading teaching and learning change to teaching knowledge that has been misrecognised”, she says.
