Abstract

This volume contains a selection of papers read at the Higher Education learning and teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA) 2006 conference. The theme of the conference was : Learning and teaching innovation in higher education : Expanding the frontiers. It was a bold decision to add innovation to the conference theme since there are a number of questions one can pose about innovation in learning and teaching. With definitions of the concept 'innovation' available in literature, the differentiations and associations of the concept, there are now established trends that have been set on how to support innovation in learning and teaching internationally. This should usher in an era in South African Higher Education where national funding is made available to support innovation in learning and teaching in more direct manner.


This volume contains a selection of papers read at the Higher Education learning and teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA) 2006 conference. The theme of the conference was : . The conference, which attracted 211 delegates from South African higher education as well as Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom, had 129 presentations. The latter part of the theme was meant to highlight the fact that though HELTASA as an association was recently launched, it has benefited from a history associated with the South African Association for Academic Development (SAAAD) and the South African Academic Development Association (SAADA). The new association is not necessarily about setting new frontiers but about expanding existing ones established by the work of the predecessors. What is perhaps new is the more inclusive focus on learning and teaching in higher education; a shift from academic development. (HELTASA 2007).
