THE OPPORTUNITIES and challenges presented by breaking up and repackaging public higher education institutions in South Africa, is the theme of a Research Centre for Digital Learning seminar.

The event will will explore the affects on teaching, learning and assessment highlighted by the ‘unbundling’ – the separation and reassembly – of the higher education space in South Africa, occurring as a consequence of growing marketisation and digitisation in the country and elsewhere.

Dr Alan Cliff  and Dr Rebecca Swartz, visiting academics from Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT), University of Cape Town, in South Africa, will deliver this seminar.

Dr Cliff, Dr Swartz and Prof Laura Czerniewicz and Sukaina Walji also at the University of Cape Town, are working with Prof Neil Morris, Dr Carlo Perrotta, Dr Bronwen Swinnerton and Dr Mariya Ivancheva in the School of Education, University of Leeds, on a research project jointly funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), UK and the National Research Foundation (NRF), South Africa, exploring Unbundling in Higher Education.
