As part of its seminar series, the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) invites all DUT members of staff and students to attend a seminar on Academic Freedom in South African Higher Education to be facilitated by Professor John Higgins of the University of Cape Town. An institutional debate is required on this topical issue given the current turbulence and uncertainty in the higher education sector. It is our hope that this discussion will contribute to the creation of a culture of transparency and critical engagement with ideas at DUT. Academic freedom is a fundamental right which makes it possible for our students, academic staff and other members of the DUT community to express their views on any issue without any fear of harassment of any kind.
A concept paper on academic freedom in the South African Higher Education which you may wish to read in preparation for the seminar is attached.
(a formal invite will be posted soon)
