CTL hosts the annual Teaching and Learning (T&L) Conference (formerly Campus Seminar) in June. The T&L Conference is a conference for general teaching and learning in higher education, and workshops and presentations are aimed at a multidisciplinary audience. NWU academic staff are invited to attend this interactive two-day event (no conference fee). The annual theme stems from the national drive for teaching and learning, as well as trends in higher education.
