Welcome to the Centre for Academic Technologies

The Centre for Academic Technologies (CAT) supports innovative and evolving technologies for teaching and learning by encouraging the smart use of academic technologies. The primary purpose of CAT is to promote the use of innovative academic technologies to provide a richer learning experience for our students and fulfill our vision of 21st-century skilled academia at the University of Johannesburg. CAT uses a variety of strategies to train and support staff and students in online and blended teaching and learning. CAT’s instructional designers and developers are all trained to improve and expand their skills, knowledge, and use of innovative academic technologies and are therefore well-equipped to provide excellent development and support services.
