Exchange visit to the University of Botswana
In October 2019 Dr. Daan le Roux embarked on a three-week staff exchange visit to the University of Botswana in Gaborone, Botswana. As part of this visit he engaged staff and students on a range of topics including research practices in media saturated environments, the fourth industrial revolution, the evolution of IS development paradigms and the impacts of chronic media multitasking on mental well-being. The exchange was funded by the TRACCAfrica programme of the European commission. The programme’s objective is to improve the skills and competences of students and staff through enhanced mobility between African countries, strengthening cooperation between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Africa.
