Strengthening Teaching & Learning 


Orientation to teaching in the Health Professions

This orientation day was developed to add practical value for new staff in the faculty (including those on the payroll of partner employees) involved in teaching of students in our undergraduate programmes. The day serves as an introduction, where after staff can enrol in other short courses presented by the CHPE. This is only a one-day workshop, structured around the curriculum development cycle and includes conversations to guide lecturers in their teaching role. 

The first orientation day was held on 24 January 2017, with 23 participants from various departments attending. Below, Dr Lizahn Cloete (Division of Occupational Therapy), shares why she loves teaching in this faculty. Mrs San Schmutz (Division of Physiotherapy) and Dr Eric Decloedt (Clinical Pharmacology) also shared their experiences and inspired the participants.



The 2018 orientation day took place on 19 January, with 17 participants from various departments attending.​
