The NWU’s Induction Programme for Academics is an activity aimed at enhancing academic staff as university teachers, as part of their academic professional development. Academic staff members begin their academic journey at the NWU by completing an online academic staff profile survey that will place the staff member in the programme tailored for either the novice academic or the experienced academic. The Induction programme is a compulsory activity for permanently appointed academic staff as well as any staff appointed to teach at the NWU. New academics are required to complete an online component, attend a three-day Campus programme, a one-day Faculty programme, and submit a portfolio of evidence.
