Faculty Teaching and Learning Award
Dr. Ufuoma Akpojivi is one of the 2017 recipients of the Faculty of Humanities Teaching and Learning Award for undergraduate teaching. According to the selection committee, they were really impressed with his considered approach to student learning at Wits. "It was particularly noted how your innovative pedagogical approaches were fostering critical thinking and transformation. The integration of African scholars and modes of thought were seen as particularly important in light of calls for decolonisation. Finally, your interest and efforts in contributing to the scholarship of teaching and learning through seeking out opportunities to write on your practice and ideas and through engaging in the PG Dip Higher Education is exactly what we aspire for colleagues in the Faculty."
