Centre for Learning Technologies
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

The purpose of these resources is to provide lecturers with ideas of how to address specific pedagogical challenges through the integration of learning technologies by sharing the experiences from lecturers in different faculties at SU. Our main emphasis is placed on addressing pedagogical challenges and to create a common understanding of the affordances of suggested learning technologies. For further instructional support, please contact the Blended Learning Coordinator (BLC) in your faculty or visit the facilitator training module on SUNLearn, click here.
