Dean: Education receives prestigious award

Our Dean of Education at the University of the Free State, Prof Dennis Francis, was recently recognised for his academic contribution to education in South Africa when he received the Honour Medal from the Education Association of South Africa.

Prof Francis, a highly productive writer and much sought-after conference speaker, is considered as one of the most gifted scholars and teachers in the field of Education.

Generated by his scholarship, he is always seeking ways to promote theory and practice by disseminating his work, and that of others, to a much broader community.

“It is a privilege and honour to be nominated by my peers," Prof Francis said.
