Led by: Carina van Rooyen
ACE team: Likhwa Ncube
Dates: June 2019 – December 2019
Funded by: University of Johannesburg’s Teaching Innovation fund

ACE has started the process of developing a new MA programme. Given the crucial role of student support in post-graduate programmes,[1] we are conducting research on effective student support initiatives anywhere in the world to inform the design of student support in our proposed new MA. In Phase 1 of the research (June – December 2019) we will develop an open access online evidence map of student support in post-graduate blended learning programmes. And in Phase 2 (2020) we will the use the findings from the evidence map in an action research project in an existing MA.
