Digital Teaching and Learning
For more than a century, the most predominant form of teaching learning in higher education has been classroom-based and instructor led face-to-face (F2F) interaction. Use of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) which offer unprecedented opportunities to enhance learning effectiveness and hence access to quality teaching, learning and assessment.
