Mrs Joyce Sewry


I am a senior lecturer in the Department. 

As a Senior Lecturer, I assist students in their Chemistry studies. I manage and lecture the Chemistry 1 Remedial course and run support tutorials for first years who are struggling or who would like to improve their marks. In addition to teaching first years I also teach two modules at the Honours level: Chemometrics and a Service-learning module. For the S-L module, students are expected to present ‘A Pollutant’s Tale’ and two hands-on experiments to grade 7 learners at two schools in and around Grahamstown.

My academic interests are in the field of Chemical Education, Community Engagement and Chemometrics.

I serve on various committees at Rhodes University and on the GADRA Education Board.

A lot of my time is spent on Outreach work: Khanya Maths and Science Club, workshops for Science teachers, workshops for school groups who visit the Department, and Science Expo. Community Engagement
