Mrs Joyce Sewry


I am a senior lecturer in the Department as well as the Deputy Dean of Science. My role as Deputy Dean of Science is in the fields of Teaching and Learning and Community Engagement.

As a lecturer, I assist students in their Chemistry studies. I manage and lecture the Chemistry  1Remedial 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.

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