​​SU Teaching Fellowship 2021

Teaching fellowships were initiated at Stellenbosch University (SU) in 2009 with the aim of, inter alia, providing an opportunity for selected academics to develop their teaching expertise and stimulating the growth of the scholarship of teaching and learning at the University. The University has awarded 14 fellowships since then.

The University Capacity Development Grants (UCDG) will be funding another (one) fellowship from January 2021. The fellowships provide excellent teachers and scholars of teaching and learning[1] with the opportunity to spend more consistent periods of time (one to three years), with various forms of support, to focus on aspects of curriculum renewal, the exploration of teaching and learning, and the dissemination of good teaching and learning practice in departments and faculties.

Recipients of an SU teaching fellowship include:
·       Dr Elize Archer (Centre for Health Professions Education, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences)
·       Dr Margaret Blackie (Department Chemistry and Polymer Science, Faculty of Science)
·       Prof. Elmarie Costandius (Department of Visual Arts, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences)
·       Dr Marianne McKay (Department of Viticulture & Oenology, Faculty of AgriSciences)
·       Prof. Ian Nell (Department of Practical Theology and Missiology, Faculty of Theology)
·       Prof. Geo Quinot (Department of Public Law, Faculty of Law)
