Message from Prof Marlene Verhoef to campus Deans (02 Aug 2015):
During a meeting held last week involving academic colleagues as well as colleagues from the IT department, it became evident that a distinct need exists for the expansion of the current student system in order to incorporate data relevant to work integrated learning and/or student practical matters.
the meeting became are aware of the huge need that exists in regard of teacher training but do not have first-hand information in regard of the need of other relevant disciplines or projects in this regard.
In order to get a project team established that is to start with the development of the specifications for the expansion of the student system to host this data, you are kindly requested to indicate by the end of the working day, 7 August 2015, whether a staff member from your faculty/department/ community project is to be included to the project team in order to see to it that your needs are sufficiently accounted for, and to include the name of such a staff member.
Upon receipt of the relevant names, the project team will start with the development process.
The assumption is that if no response is received from you by the set time, it would be regarded that you do not have any specific needs that would need to be accounted for at a systems level.
Thank you very much for your urgent attention to the matter. Looking forward receiving your feedback in due course.
