This year will feature a workshops and presentations around student safety, Disabilities, Careers, Turnitin, TOL and GLO’s just to name a few agenda items.

Behind the scenes – ULTC

Since the disestablishment of WPLC (Work Place Learning Committee), WPL matters now rest with the University Learning and Teaching Committee (ULTC) who has a mandate of WPL in their terms of reference. ULTC has now met once and has another meeting scheduled for June. During this meeting the WPL risk register which was developed by WPLC last year will be tabled.
