Short CV

I am Dr Mamokhosi Choane, a lecturer in the Department of Political Studies and Governance. I teach undergraduate International Relations modules and postgraduate Political Dynamics, which involves South African Politics and Comparative Politics modules. I am also responsible for postgraduate supervision. I obtained my Master`s degree in Governance & Political Transformation in 2002 and my Doctorate in higher education studies in 2021 at the University of the Free State. With her Ph.D. thesis titled: Enhancing Risk Management Skills at a Municipality Using an Adult Education, the candidate contributes to the body of knowledge by addressing the knowledge gap regarding effective risk management strategies, focusing on how can the risk management skills of officials at a municipality be enhanced using adult education approach. Dr M Choane`s research answer to this research question is "How can the RM skills of officials at a municipality be enhanced using the adult education approach?" that contributes to the body of knowledge on adult education and, more pointedly, to strategies effective for adult learning. The candidate engaged Ubuntu as a lens to look at problems and possible adult learning solutions at the local level and claim what knowledge is and how it is acquired using participatory action research. The findings suggest that acknowledging correct and structured prior experience can positively influence new ideas and the understanding of mitigating risks in a municipality.
