On Thursday, 16 May 2013, the University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Student Marketing Department, within the division of Institutional Advancement, hosted more than 200 guests at their Annual Teachers Conference held at the Fairway Hotel and Golf Estate, in Randpark Ridge.
The many guests in attendance included school principals, teachers, officials from the Department of Education and Umalusi as well as UJ staff from various faculties and departments.
The theme for this year’s conference was Excellence, with the tagline “Do or Don’t. There’s no Try”. Delegates showed enthusiasm, excited to be part of such a prestigious event and looking forward to learning as much as they could from the speakers.
The conference gave all nine of UJ’s Executive Deans and senior representatives a platform to present to the delegates a range of information about their respective faculties. The Student Enrolment Centre, together with the Department of Student Finance, also shared valuable insight about UJ at the event.
Representatives from PsyCad, Sport and Arts and Culture presented a small exhibition throughout the evening, which was aimed at giving educators an opportunity to gather information and to ask questions.
The interactive performance of the live band called Drum Café closed off the proceedings on a high note.
