Thinking out of the box has paid off for Dirk Muller, who opted for an innovative approach to solving a problem he identified whilst working on a research project.

From saving the world to keeping heart disease at bay, CPUT has the solution to everyday problems.

The findings of a successful doctoral research project will help CPUT in the development of an honours programme that will provide education students and current educators with the appropriate skills to teach a first additional language.

CPUT researchers are making their mark on the world.

Food security and aquaculture

The Food Technology Department along with the Afrigood Technology Station has embarked on a multi-million rand research project that will contribute to food security in South Africa.

A group of academics in the Faculty of Education are looking forward to publishing the first batch of research articles in accredited South African and international journals following a retreat recently.

Determined to equip each other with research writing skills and increase the university’s research output the group of 10 academics has been professionally supporting each other with their research projects since the beginning of the year.

Seasoned researchers Dr Agnes Chigona and Prof Lungi Sosibo are mentors in the group which was initiated by the latter when she sent an invitation to all the faculty's academics to join.

“I wanted to assist emerging researchers with research writing skills after I was also mentored by Dr Chigona,” says Sosibo.

She adds that they have not just built a community of research among themselves but have also bonded since forming the group.

The members meet every month to give each other feedback on their projects and were recently at a retreat in a guest house in Stellenbosch where a lot of coaching and writing took place.

They are expecting to publish the first round articles in journals by the end of the month.

The group consists of Alfred Mwanza, Kwanele Booi, Zakhile Somlata and Drs Chiwimbiso Kwenda, Nozuko Gxekwa, Stanley Adendorff, Christa Thornhill and Cina Mosito.

Many of them have presented at conferences before but had a challenge with writing papers.

“It is a motivational exercise to encourage colleagues to publish their research reports,” says Kwenda.

Booi, an emerging researcher, attributed the recent acceptance of his abstract by the International Society for Technology in Education to the support from the group.

The group acknowledges the moral, professional and financial support it enjoys from the faculty’s research department led by Prof Rajendra Chetty.
