Shanali Govender

Team: Staff Development

Shanali is a lecturer within the Staff Development unit at CILT. Although Shanali’s teaching experience began in secondary education, a return to higher education to pursue her own studies prompted a shift to an interest in the higher education landscape. She has worked (in varying capacities) in three South African institutions of higher education, and has strong interests in the scholarship  of learning and teaching.

Her particular brief in the staff development team is to support part-time and non-permanent teaching staff. She is responsible for running the s.e.a.TEACH (supporting emerging academics’ teach) programme and works within departments and faculties on request. While continuing to work in the field of staff development at UCT, she is working towards her PhD, looking at discourses in the learning experiences of first year engineering students.
