How can universities — often perceived as ivory towers — help identify the obstacles to learning at the school level? A book, Partnerships in Action, attempts to answer this question and to find solutions. The University of Cape Town’s Schools Improvement Initiative identified a potential partner in Intshayelelo Primary School. Beyond collaborating on the book, academics and principals have learnt from one another about the classroom.
A series of CPD accredited lunch time cross-disciplinary discussions was hosted by Primary Health Care (PHC) in the Faculty of Health Sciences between the 30 July and the 7th September.
