The meeting was organised back-to-back with a joint South Africa/EU seminar on education and training which brought together practitioners to discuss challenges and ideas on the relevance and modernisation of education, skills, innovation and driving continental and international development.

Good practices in teaching, learning, assessment, innovative pedagogies, blended learning, cooperation with the public and private sector, access to diverse learning opportunities and the shifting role of education institutions in society were also all on the agenda.

A 30th Anniversary of Erasmus+ dinner event was held on 4 May in the evening where South African Erasmus+ students and alumni were able to share their expectations and experiences with practitioners from Europe and South Africa and the higher education authorities. A Study in Europe fair took place on 4 and 5 May in parallel to these events where the EU and EU countries will be presenting scholarship opportunities to students from across the province and beyond.


The seminar report is also available.
