We invite undergraduate and postgraduate students at UKZN to submit their written pieces of no more than 1000 words for the “Learning in the Digital Age” Student Challenge. Submissions can be in the form of personal essays or opinion pieces. We encourage students to be creative and innovative in their submissions, and to explore how technology can be used to create engaging and effective learning experiences. AI generated responses will be disqualified.
Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of reviewers based on relevance to the theme, originality, creativity, clarity and coherence of ideas, as well as structure. The two top undergraduate and postgraduate submissions will be presented at the ISOTL Conference at UKZN.
This is a unique opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students at UKZN to showcase their ideas and insights on how technology can be leveraged to enhance learning outcomes in the digital age.
The challenge is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students currently enrolled at the University of KwaZulu Natal in the 2023 academic year.
All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of reviewers based on relevance to the theme, originality and creativity, clarity and coherence of ideas, as well as structure.
Accepted submissions in each category will be notified by 1st August 2023.
We hope these guidelines provide the necessary information for students to submit their work for the “Learning in the Digital Age” Student Challenge.
