Mandy lectures in the Centre for Higher Education Research, Teaching and Learning (CHERTL) at Rhodes University. She has worked in the field of higher education as an academic developer for more than a decade. She sees her contribution to the field of higher education studies emerging primarily from two areas. Curriculum development concerns, with particular focus on the relationship between disciplinary knowledge and teaching and learning. The second contribution is linked to her role as Rhodes University’s co-ordinator of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) funded New Generation of Academics Programme (nGAP). Both interests are underpinned by her commitment to the transformation agenda of higher education.
