Parow campus bursting at the seams as students arrive to interact with Unisa

As part of the Cape Coastal Region’s focus on increasing interaction with students and improving throughput, students were invited to the Parow Campus on Saturday 24 July 2010. 
Abdul Barday, Technology-Enhanced Learning Coordinator for the region, did a presentation on the use of technology in the lives of Unisa students, while Mr Convy Baloyi, Dean of Students, addressed students on general academic issues and constraints faced by students.
The interest shown by students was overwhelming.  Nearly a thousand students arrived for the event.  The presentation on the use of technology had to be repeated during the afternoon and the interaction with the Dean of Students had to be moved to the registration foyer because of the huge turn out.

A number of concerns were raised by students in the region, mostly about the
  • late delivery of study material
  • limited number of discussion classes in the region by academics
  • starting times of exams
  • difficulty of making contact with Unisa staff members, especially on the Muckleneuk campus
  • slow response time of Unisa staff members on queries
While addressing these issues, the Dean of Students also cautioned students to make sure that they refer issues to the correct departments and ensure that correspondence with the university is legible and concise.  He also asked students to refrain from using inflammatory wording in their dealings with Unisa staff members.
During the presentations on technology, students were shown how to use available technology to their benefit.  The Unisa website, myUnisa, myLife, the Unisa Library website, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and even HelloPeter were among the topics discussed.
