    Pandemic Paupers and Princes

    Prof. Laura Czerniewicz, University of Cape Town

    Gains and losses for public higher education have taken both expected and unexpected forms as a result of the “online pivot”. Various forms of inequity have come sharply into focus, and new possibilities are open to us. This talk will draw on pandemic experiences within a South African context in order to explore wider themes and learnings that we must carry forward as we imagine the post-pandemic University.

    Laura Czerniewicz was the first director of the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT), at the University of Cape Town, (2014 to 2020) having previously led UCT’s Centre for Educational Technology, OpenUCT Initiative and Multimedia Education Group. Her many roles in education over the years include academic, researcher, strategist, advocate, teacher, teacher-trainer and educational publisher. Threaded through all her work has been a focus on equity and digital inequality. These have permeated her research interests which focus on the changing nature of higher education in a digitally-mediated society and new forms of teaching and learning provision. She plays a key strategic and scholarly role in the areas of blended /online learning as well as in open education institutionally, nationally and internationally.
