"...we’ve come up with a series of questions to encourage academics across faculties to unearth some of the norms, assumptions and everyday practices that are taken for granted and which may be entangled in the “hidden curriculum”. This might help us to think through the “how” as well as the “what”, as a first practical step towards “decolonising” our teaching."
Humanities Education Development Unit's Shannon Morreira and Associate Professor, Kathy Luckett report on the work of a working group called "Decolonising Pedagogy in the Humanities".

Last year we saw the retirement of ADP stalwart Associate Professor Bette Davidowitz, fondly known as Dr Dee whose teaching philosophy has been greatly informed by Boyer. Emeritus professor Bette Davidowitz obtained her first degree at UCT in 1973, completing a PhD in chemistry 11 years later. Being at UCT at the inception of the Academic Development Programme she has been instrumental in shaping the offering in chemistry specifically, and science more broadly.
