Nuraan Davids; Yusef Waghid – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Students, through teaching and learning, must reflect on what they do not know. It is only when they recognise what they know, and what they do not, that they will awaken to their own curiosity. The more they can open themselves to others and their epistemologies, the deeper their own self-reflection in relation to others. In this way, engendering…

Groenewald, Emma; le Roux, Adré – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023

Kumar, Vijay; Wald, Nave – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Doctoral education and supervision have changed in recent decades.

Dukhan, Shalini – Higher Education Research and Development, 2020
Formal education was used by the apartheid government to prepare black South Africans for manual labour, thus there was little curricular focus on the development of higher-order cognitive skills. With the abolition of apartheid in 1994, the education system was re-valued and re-evaluated to provide wider access to quality education; the focus of…
