NTSIKA KITSILILOCAL RESEARCHER - RHODES
Ntsika Kitsili is a Masters student in Education and also a Bachelor of Education Foundation year 1 coordinator at Rhodes University. His main teaching and research interest is in literacy. Prior to moving to Rhodes University Ntsika worked for GADRA Education under a project called Primary Education Program. Under this program, Ntsika was involved in supporting in service teachers through providing practical workshops that were based on the need expressed by teachers. The focus of the workshops was to expand teachers’ knowledge of teaching reading and writing by exposing them to other methods and strategies of teaching reading and writing. Because of that work, Ntsika went to Pietermaritzburg to run a workshop on how to utilize shared writing methodology to develop independent writers during the RASA conference 2016.
