Jacksons Update – October 19th 2018

Fraser attended a two-day conference in Cape Town last week, getting practical ideas on how to make the NetACT portal mobile-friendly since many students have smartphones rather than PCs.  He may also be allowed to attend an “in-house” conference at Stellenbosch University later this month if the university accept his ‘visitor’ status as equivalent to staff.

 This past week Dawn was to go to Pollsmoor prison on Tuesday and Wednesday for a training course on the Victim/Offender dialogue.

 During the last few weeks, Stellenbosch University played host to the Director of the Barnabas Fund and members of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life who are very interested in what NetACT is doing.  They are keen to collaborate with us on the current project of producing a book on public theology in Africa.
