The Office for Inclusivity and Change develops and implements social justice and relevant public health issues into core curricula in faculties at UCT. The OIC works collaboratively with course convenors to develop and implement curricula that implicitly link the discipline to social justice issues that influence or affect UCT students in their personal and professional development.
This approach acknowledges the constraints on curriculum time and teaching resources for expanding the scope of a curriculum. Further development in curricula includes the digitization of teaching and learning material so that content can be utilised interactively and is accessible. Additional functionality of the digitized material will ensure that students’ responses are stored, collated and analysed for evaluation and research purposes.
