Prof Rudolph Britz of the Department of Philosophy at the University of the Free State visited the Two Oceans Graduate Institute on 5 February 2020 for a discussion on the role of research at a tertiary teacher education institution. It is the vision of the Two Oceans Graduate Institute to be a research institution in the fullest sense of the word in order to inform teaching and learning with research based evidence and content. Teaching and learning underpinned by research should 'perceive knowledge and knowledge production along the lines of innovative originality', according to Prof Britz. He emphasised that ‘inspired research engagement, in terms of its scope of understanding, reflects a  fundamental respect and acquaintance with the philosophy that carries the intellectual trajectory of which it is part, thus linked to origins, and innovation’.
‘The Two Oceans Graduate Institute will continually strive towards the establishment of a research platform and portfolio embedded in a paradigm conceptualised as innovative originality’, said Dr Lourens Erasmus, CEO of TOGI after the research day discussions. ‘The research portfolio at our institution and the contribution of our lecturers and academics will reveal the qualities and integrity of humility, respect, truth, reliability, authenticity, accountability and truthfulness, to serve our academic project and to educate teachers of high quality and competence, in the best possible way’, said Dr Erasmus.
