PGDip in Adult and Community Education (ACET)


My interests include adult and community education and the relationships of these with social justice, inequality and social change. I am currently registered for a PhD at UCT; in my research I am using case study methodology to explore visions of, practices towards and possibilities for social justice-oriented adult education in two Community Learning Centres in the Western Cape.
