Academic Mobility


Academic Mobility and Collaboration


In 2000 I started collaboration between Information Systems Department, University of the Witwatersrand and IQ Business Group on information system projects. It was a long and fruitful association that incited my interest in partnerships with businesses and industry. 



In 2007 I was invited to present a paper at the Oxford Round Table in London on ‘The regulation of cyberspace: Balancing the interests‘. It was a fabulous topic and which I felt very honored to have had my research chosen. I was preparing to give talk about my innovative ideas and inspiration on on-line information protection and suddenly I was prevented due to some health reasons.

In 2011 I commenced the project CroSa (acronym for Croatia – South Africa) at the University of Zadar in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg. The aim was to improve the teaching and entrepreneurial skills of teacher-engineers in the Zadar County.

In 2012 I was appointed project leader of the international research project ‘Women in Research’. The aim was to form communities of practice at institutions of higher education to empower innovation capabilities of both learners and academics.  Pilot communities of practice were organized at UNISA, University of the Witwatersrand, University of Johannesburg, University of Dubrovnik (where a seminar on communities of practice was presented), University of Zadar, Croatia, and University of Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In 2018 initiated collaboration between the Department of Science and Technology Education (CEDU), UNISA, and the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia. This resulted in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two universities.
