I have been involved in the education sector for my entire working career. I started off as a high school teacher where I taught Mathematics and Computer Studies. My teaching career culminated in my appointment as the Senior Certificate Chief Examiner for Computer Studies. I joined UKZN in 2001 and my lecturing responsibilities are mainly in the domain of software development. I currently co-ordinate the teaching of the final year undergraduate capstone course named Advanced Systems Implementation. I also teach the Software Engineering course at Honours level and the Knowledge Management course at Master’s level. My lecturing duties are spread across the Pietermaritzburg and Westville campuses of UKZN.
