  • Challenging the Apartheids of Knowledge in Higher Education through Social Innovation. This book draws together researchers on Community Engagement in South Africa. In order to understand the relationship between social innovation and the reimagining of the knowledge economy necessary to reorient higher education most fully towards the public good, we must draw from the experiences of those working on the front lines of change. This collection represents diverse voices and disciplines, drawing together the critical reflections of academics, students and community partners from across South Africa. The book seeks to bring together theoretical and practical lessons about how research methods can be used in socially innovative ways to challenge the 'apartheids' of knowledge in higher education and to promote the democratization of the knowledge economy. Joana Bezerra, a fellow in Rhodes University Community Engagement division and colleague of Diana Hornby, is the author of the chapter on service-learning: More information:

  • Viaja Baraja [travelling cards]. An educational video game created by the social organization Fundación SES, in the context of the Sportic Programme (an initiative of the International Olympic Committee and the Inter-American Development Bank). This game depicts the adventure of a group of teenagers on a journey in which they must go through different realistic and current situations that will enable them to identify with emotions and decide through cards how to face them. For adolescents between 12 and 18 years old, it is an educational video game that promotes training in socio-emotional skills, such as decision-making, empathy and critical thinking, while addressing central themes for adolescents and youth like anxiety and expectations about the future, self-discovery, non-binary identities, prejudices towards femininity in the world of sport, perception in social networks, among others.
