I am passionate about student development and academic support, and work with first and second year students in the Economic and Management Sciences Faculty (EMS) at the University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa. I am also a PhD student in my final year of registration and I am investigating learning challenges that first-year, second language students experience in EMS, as well as trying to find out what learning strategies these students use and how we, as lecturers, could assist these students with their learning challenges.
