USB-ED is geared and ready to deliver seamless remote learning in place of face-to-face or blended delivery

USB Executive Development (USB-ED) is continuously monitoring the developments around the global pandemic, as well as announcements made by South African government, Stellenbosch University (SU), University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), and other in-person event hosts/partners to determine any changes to programme modalities.

In the event in-person facilitations have to be changed to remote events due to concerning developments, unforeseen announcements, and additional restrictions implemented, USB-ED will notify participants as far in advance as possible. As it stands, in-person events taking place in 2022, pertaining to our blended programmes, will commence as scheduled.

Before, during, and after in-person events, USB-ED will implement strict Covid-19 protocols as prescribed by South African government and expect rigorous conformation to all health and safety protocols from all attendees - not only for their safety but for the protection of others as well.

Along with many other institutions and organisations in South Africa and worldwide, USB-ED and its in-person event hosts/partners are investigating the possibility of mandatory vaccinations for access to programme venues. USB-ED will notify participants of any developments as far in advance as possible.

How does Remote Learning work in practicality?

Remote Learning, via the Zoom virtual platform, is live, synchronised learning, and attendance at the pre-scheduled sessions is compulsory. Rest assured that USB-ED, as well as the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), is ready and well equipped to enable this shift. We have had the required infrastructure and support systems in place for some time and we will do everything we can to ensure that, as a participant, you are effortlessly able to engage in the Remote Learning environment. Our faculty, Learning Process Facilitators (LPFs) and relevant staff have received both technical and engagement training in order to ensure that your learning experience is not diminished in any way, in fact we advocate that it will be augmented as a result.
