  • 1. Tertiary Education Ballroom Facilitator – Nick Rockey Mokibelo Ntshabeleng – Tshikululu Corrine Abel – HCI FoundationTaddy Blecher – Maharashni Institute
  • 2. Tertiary Education Practices holding us back• Limiting the perception of ‘tertiary education’ to a narrow range of skills and qualifications (society has a broad array of needs, and individuals have a diverse range of interests!)• Lack of funding for students with poor marks (these are the students who need the help!)• Lack of subsistence support (only meeting only a portion of the need)• Lack of role models and mentorship (life skills, career management)• Difficulty of tracking student progress during and post- university• Different levels of academic development among students is not well managed
  • 3. Tertiary Education Practices holding us back• Difficulty of tracking student progress during and post-university• Large class size (diminishing the ability to give individualised attention)• Difficulty of teaching to multiple levels of cognitive development (and language abilities, IT skills etc)• Competition between institutions• The criterion for funding bursaries discourages learners who might choose different careers and excel in different subjects.
  • 4. Tertiary Education Practices that should be encouraged• Reporting on programmes’ progress (both successes & challenges)• Bridging the gap between high school and tertiary education (i.e. mentoring around life skills – not just academic)• Mentoring students in creative and critical thinking• Identifying opportunities for sponsors to be more involved with beneficiaries (including post-university)• Encouraging students to repay their bursary (building income generation into the project)• Encouraging students to ‘pay it forward’ (fostering a sense of responsibility and accountability)
  • 5. Tertiary Education Practices that should be encouraged• Getting both corporate and NPOs involved in M&E – or one could ask the universities to do it as a research project• Helping students to learn and study within their own unique life context (and help them to apply learning in a relevant manner)• Assess not only the knowledge of the students, but also teachers (and provide necessary support)• Focus on a “transition year” to avoid disappointment and failure in first year - Mentorship and guidance can start at school level• Multipurpose forums with an aim to have inclusive stakeholders – not just maths and science
