The Hincks Centre are delighted to partner on the Higher Education Reform Experts of South Africa (HERE-SA).

The HERESA project is an Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project for Higher Education (CBHE), which was awarded to the Technological Higher Education Network South Africa (THENSA) and OBREAL-Global Observatory in 2020. The project aims at developing a network of Higher Education Reform Experts in South Africa, inspired by the important practice of the Higher Education Reform Experts (HERE) in the EU region, which have been influencing policy change in their respective countries for approximately a decade.

HERESA, based in the member universities of THENSA (previously SATN), will form a similar network of South African technology-focussed universities, which will focus on the revision and reinvigoration of teaching and learning strategies, especially when it comes to Work-Integrated learning (WIL), entrepreneurship and teaching for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).

The Hincks Centre are part of a strong team from MTU including Extended Campus, Dept Mechanical Engineering and TEL. 

Meeting with THENSA (Project Lead) and European Partners.


The kick-off meeting for this project will be held virtually 25-26th February.
