The 2022 Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Conference for academics at SU is fast approaching. This year's conference theme is 'Re-imagining assessment culture and practices for a transformative student experience'. It will be a hybrid event – the pre-conference workshops will be presented face-to-face at the Devon Valley Protea Hotel just outside Stellenbosch, while the rest of the conference proceedings will happen online on MS Teams. The keynote speaker on the morning of Wednesday the 24th of October is Professor Paul Ashwin from Lancaster University. His keynote address will focus on “The role of assessment in a transformative university education". 

In addition to the keynote speaker, an exciting keynote panel is lined up for the morning of Tuesday the 25th of October. The keynote panellists are Professor Lan Yang (University of Hong Kong); Professor Francois Cilliers (University of Cape Town); and Professor Richard Stevens (Stellenbosch University). Over the next few weeks, in the run-up to the conference, we will be showcasing each of the keynote panellists, starting with Professor Lan Yang (picture above).​
