Call for proposals
We invite proposals from a range of disciplines (such as ethics, learning design, academic advising and STEM fields) that make use of data to support an integrative approach for student success. In particular we are keen to receive proposals of projects that contribute to student success and throughput. Proposals should ideally demonstrate the application of learnings from the Siyaphumelela programme in their project and present empirical evidence of the intervention improving student success.
In particular, the conference supports
● Leadership and innovation for student success
● Use of data for change
● Learning design for today's students
● Evaluation of, or Impact on, student success
