Teaching and Learning Improvement Division

The Division: Teaching and Learning Improvement facilitates the provision of continuing professional development in the area of effective teaching in higher education to all faculties, campuses, centres and units of the University of Namibia. The Division offers a wide range of short courses in the areas of effective teaching and learning, assessment, mentoring and induction of new staff members. In addition, the Division runs the university-wide student-lecturer evaluation system. Part of the evaluation is to generate feedback data on the basis of which evidence and needs based professional development programmes for university educators are crafted. In collaboration with the Faculty of Education, the Division coordinates the implementation of the Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education which intends to equip university educators with the relevant concepts and skills of teaching in higher education contexts. Currently, close to ten educators and learning support staff members from the Faculty of Health Sciences are enrolled on the programme.
