ATTS Project Workshop Video

The video below will be a refresher for those who attended Prof. Peter Glendinning's in-person workshops at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Durban University of Technology, Nelson Mandela University, North-West University, Stellenbosch University, University of the Free State, and University of Pretoria in 2022.

For students from other universities he was not able to visit, the video will provide guidance and tips on how to formulate a project presenting their own aspirational metaphor, a tableau portrait, and an oral-history story of their inspiring subject.

Please watch this video to learn how to make your project as successful as possible!
