A New Space for Higher Education Academics
The Higher Education Training and Development (HEDT) Centre, which operates as both a Discipline in the School of Education as part of the Education Development cluster, and as Higher Education Training and Development within the Teaching and Learning Office, recently opened the doors to its newly-designed office premises on the Howard College campus.
Speaking at the launch of the offices, Director for the HEDT, Professor Damtew Teferra, said the Centre is committed to excellence in all aspects, and across all levels of the sector.
He also shared copies of The International Journal of African Higher Education (IJAHE), to which he contributed the editorial and first article titled “Charting African Higher Education – Perspectives at a Glance.”
Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Learning, Professor Renuka Vithal, congratulated Teferra and the HEDT staff on their new offices. ‘It’s wonderful to see the new facilities since a lot of energy and effort was involved in the creation of the office spaces. We hope the HEDT will continue to grow from strength to strength as a space for academics of Higher Education,’ she said.
The new offices boast a reception area, neat office spaces and a fully functional and well-equipped boardroom. The HEDT is located in the Denis Shepstone building.
