Mandy lectures and coordinates the Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education. She also coordinates the following programmes: New Generation of Academic Programme, Nurturing Emerging Scholars Programme and Rhodes Mentoring Programme for early career academics.

Mandy is passionate about higher education. She sees her contribution to the field of higher education studies emerging primarily from two areas. Curriculum development concerns, with particular focus on the relationship between disciplinary knowledge and teaching and learning. The second contribution is linked to her role as the coordinator of three early career programmes for Rhodes University.
