Teaching & Learning Seminar

Presented by Bongi Bangeni, ADP, CHED, this seminar attempts to stimulate discussions around matters pertaining to academic literacies and disciplinary discourses, and what these mean for our teaching and assessment practices.

The seminar draws on: findings from two longitudinal studies on undergraduate students’ experiences as they attempt to become legitimate members of their academic disciplines; and an Academic Literacies framework, discussing some of the challenges experienced by these students as they navigate several transitions (from high school to first year, first year to second and third year) and disciplinary discourses. As part of this seminar, participants will discuss ways in which their teaching and assessment practices can respond to students' challenges with disciplinary discourses.
