Janice McMillan, PhD

Dr Janice McMillan is a Senior Lecturer based in the Curriculum and Course Design team. She joined UCT in 1994, first in the Department of Adult Education, and since 2000, in CHED, based first in HAESDU and now in the new merged unit CILT. Janice's teaching, research and development interests centre on higher education and social responsiveness - with particular emphasis on community-engaged learning, critical citizenship and university-community partnerships more broadly. - See more at:

Since 2010, she has been Convenor of the UCT Global Citizenship: Leading for Social Justice programme. The programme is linked to three of UCT’s six strategic goals and as far as possible, the programme also tries to reflect the four UCT strategic themes: war and peace; improving South African schools; climate change and sustainability; poverty and inequality. Since 2013, she has taught on and convened a credit-bearing version of the GC short courses in the EBE faculty. Increasingly Janice is working with departments and faculties on thinking about how to embed graduate attributes linked to citizenship and social justice into their programmes, in particular through community engaged forms of pedagogy.
