“I see the teaching profession as enabling. Teaching is a platform that provides others with the means to achieve. The agendas of my students for their self-development become my challenge.”
As a Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University or Pretoria, my academic and research interests relate to the fields of language-in-education and literacies teaching, instructional design and communication.
I have a strong bias for teaching and enabling – to strengthen capacity, to motivate, and to inspire, across different age groups and cultures. In turn, my love of teaching inspires me to share my professional intent, as evidenced in my research publications and the narrative of my work that you will find on these pages.
