New CAPLP head becomes ICELDA Director: Operations
At ICELDA’s board meeting in October 2012, Tobie van Dyk, its then chief administrative officer, was promoted to Director: Operations. Tobie was recently appointed as professor in the School of Languages, and director of the Centre for Academic and Professional Language Practice (CAPLP) at North-West University’s Potchefstroom campus. He will take up his new position in January 2013.
“I look forward to invest time and energy in the CAPLP. Working together with a team of dedicated professionals in a stable and sustainable environment is an opportunity of a lifetime,” says Tobie. He is particularly excited about further developing an already well-established centre that has national recognition for its research output and its teaching and learning materials. “Our national profile will enable us to enter the international arena to become a world class centre. Our relevance must eventually stretch beyond our own borders.”
