Higher Education in South Africa: 20 years since transition
Council on Higher Education
Since 1994, the higher education system in South Africa has undergone significant policy changes and interventions as part of the broader transformation processes linked to the democratic project. The Council on Higher Education (CHE) is undertaking a review of the last twenty years of higher education. For a range of associated publications the CHE has called for papers on the policy and practice of higher education (public and private) in South Africa post-1994. The papers are expected to critically reflect on and assess developments and policy interventions over the last two decades, analysing their implications and consequences, both intended and unintended, and contribute to finding ways forward to ensure that the higher education sector in South Africa is strong, just, appropriate and vibrant.
Papers were invited around the following areas or on related matters of importance and relevance to the development of the higher education sector:
- The higher education context globally and in South Africa
- Regulation; management and governance of universities
- University funding
- Academic staffing
- Students; teaching, learning and assessment
- Engagement with broader society and internationalisation
Full papers are due by 1 September 2013.
