UJ collaborates with DBE, Africa Teen Geeks and Unicef to deliver teacher training workshop, launch tutoring campaign

The University of Johannesburg (UJ) Soweto Science Centre in partnership with the Department of Basic Education (DBE), Africa Teen Geeks and Unicef will be hosting a teacher training workshop in July 2021. The aim of the workshop is to equip teachers with the necessary skills to thrive in their online (or hybrid) classrooms, and to come up with new ways that keep students engaged.

“The Soweto Science Centre is one of UJ’s flagship community engagement projects where one of the objectives is professional development,” explains Dr Cerene Rathilal, the organiser of the workshop, from UJ. Teacher training workshops are hosted annually where skills and competence development are a key component of the programme. Teachers who think outside of the box and prioritise creative thinking are well suited to help students succeed. The online workshop will create opportunities for teachers to innovate and create engaging learning experiences for their students in a digital learning environment.

This strategic partnership has seen the establishment of a national tutoring campaign, led by Africa Teen Geeks and the UJ Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, which will be ongoing during the school holidays and every Saturday until the year-end final exams. This national campaign is aimed at preparing and equipping students with strategies to adequately and correctly answer question papers in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The impact of Covid-19 on learners has necessitated support and innovative methods to help students understand and do well in their subjects.

More details about the teacher training workshop will be shared on the Africa Teen Geeks website, social media and other available communication platforms.
