I have extensive experience in the fields of Consumer Studies education and Technology education. These are two high school subjects in South Africa.
My research focuses on investigating, analysing and benchmarking the curricula for these subjects, as well as developing teacher training programmes to support teachers in the effective implementation of the curricula of these subjects in practice.
