UFS strip research

Prof Jita Sanral

The SANRAL Chair in Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology Education was launched on 11 September 2014. Prof Loyiso Jita was appointed to this position on the Bloemfontein Campus of the University of the Free State, where the SANRAL Chair’s office forms part of the School of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology Education in the Faculty of Education.

At school level, the chair helps to train teachers, support student-teacher interns, and incentivise education results so that participating schools become centres of excellence. At an academic level, the SANRAL Chair is supervising a cohort of doctoral and master’s students, while also guiding research and publications in mathematics, science, and technology education.

Through the endowment, SANRAL is assisting the UFS in producing education leaders who can turn around maths and science education in disadvantaged schools throughout Southern Africa.
