TEACHING AND LEARNING: LOCALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY

South African Netherlands Programme on Alternatives in Development [SANPAD]
At the beginning of 2003: 
I was appointed the chief adjudicator and facilitator of the Research Capacity Initiative [RCI] of the SANPAD Ph D Programme, primarily geared at nurturing research skills amongst historically neglected South African academics. During the selection phase of the RCI Ph D candidates for 2003, I presented, in January 2003,  several lectures on the origin, nature and development of  research methodology at Post-graduate level. In May 2003 I presented a module on “Discourse Analysis” to the 2003 RCI  Ph D students. In October 2003 I participated in a Curriculum Design Workshop for SANPAD Ph D students and continue to act as one of their Research Methodology experts. 
Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern African [OSSREA]
I am a member of the Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern African [OSSREA] and under its auspices, in December 2003, I taught research methodology in Development and Gender Studies to Ph D students from across the African continent at the University of Cape Town Graduate Business School. 
Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa [CODESRIA]
I am a member of the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa and since 2006 co-ordinate and present research methodology workshops to lecturers and Doctoral students  from Harare, Zimbabwe and Dakar, Senegal. I also assess/examine scholarly articles submitted to CODESRIA for publication in their academic journals.
