A panel discussion with Chris de Beer (DUT Fine Art and Jewellery Design), Cary Burnett (DUT Video Technology), Dan Pienaar (DUT Engineering Faculty), Maud Blose (Lecturer in Journalism) and Rosh Sunder (DUT Teaching and Learning Practitioner). The session will include a live online quiz on Neil Harbisson.
Maud Blose is a lecturer in Journalism who is currently pursuing her PhD studies. She immediately embraced the e-Learning platform when she started lecturing in 2011 where she was part of the last group that was trained for a year in using Blackboard. This training lead her to starting a students online news publication called Journalismiziko which provides a practical training ground for student journalists. She has a certificate in online teaching (among her other qualifications). Ensuring to provide a different learning environment to her students, this year Blose engaged in a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project with a professor from the Universidad de Sonora in Mexico where they produced a project looking at cancer awareness using digital storytelling techniques. That project gave birth to a community outreach initiative.
