JUCC has welcomed CAUDIT at their Leadership Institute held in Discovery Bay, Hong Kong over three days in April.
The JUCC (Joint Universities Computer Centre Ltd) program is headed by Gerrit Bahlman, Director, Information Technology, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, along with a number of local faculty from Hong Kong Universities and international representation from Australia, South Africa and the USA. In the past, Gerrit has made significant contributions to the CAUDIT Leadership Institute (CLI) when he joined the CLI faculty from 2000 - 2003 and then as Director from 2004 – 2007 (and as an active member on the CAUDIT Executive Committee for a number of years)
Both the JUCC program and the program delivered by the Association of South African University Directors of Information Technology (ASAUDIT) share the same values and purpose as CAUDIT’s annual Leadership Institute, by delivering a robust stream of non-technical skills demanded of today’s leaders. Local faculty are drawn from current IT leaders within the higher education sector, for the benefit of the sector within their respective countries.
The collaboration between Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa allows for a consistent approach when delivering a program based on a proven framework ensuring best and ethical practices are advanced.
