About

My name is Nic Spaull and I’m currently a post-doc fellow at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. I’m also part of RESEP - SVDB’s crew of cool researchers who look at things related to social policy. Full CV here, minimalist version here.

So this is my blog, which is a selective collection of thoughts about my reality, the reality of others and anything else I think is interesting or noteworthy. I’m also on Facebook and Twitter and  Tumblr and Pinterest.

I’ll try and include one picture with every post to keep it visually interesting…

Also, I believe that wherever possible we should share information. Information empowers people, and enables them to make better decisions and to take advantage of more opportunities. So wherever feasible I’ve included links to whatever I’m talking about, or better still, the actual document. Onward and upward…

  1. Nic this is perfect :)

  2. Dear Nic Read your article in the ST today and a number of your previous articles. I was impressed and would very much like to meet with you ASAP please.

    I do believe that I have established a part solution to the Maths & Science crisis in SA. I have endorsements form Prof Jonathan Jansen, Prof Kobus Meiring and Dr Stacey Nickson on the work that I am doing – but I need further input and support from someone like yourself, please.

    Please have a look at our website at: http://www.mathsandscience.com for more information about what we have already done for SA Maths & Science teachers in the past 18 months. I think that you will be very pleasantly surprised!

    Could you contact me at: mwteach@mweb.co.za so that we can set up a meeting, please. This has really become urgent.

    Many thanks

  3. Hi Nic,

    I am thoroughly enjoying your Q&A category.
    Is there any chance you could cover the topic of sustainable development with a professional in the field.

    Please let me know!

  4. It is going to take you just few years to become a professor. Infact, it might happen as soon as you obtain your PhD
