Reddy, C. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
The complex field of education is often depicted as a static field governed by technocratic approaches to activities that characterise the field. Education change is equally viewed in such limited and positivistic ways and linear means-end processes (Hoban 2002). In such orientations to the field, educational research therefore, is about finding…

North, D.; Zewotir, T.; Murray, M. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011

Balfour, R. J.; Moletsane, R.; Karlsson, J. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
Knowledge generation over the decade 1995-2004 in South Africa, and its relationship to the changing nature of socio-economic landscapes, suggests an ever closer relationship between the research produced in higher education, and its social and scientific purposes. These have been identified largely by the State through its regulatory frameworks,…

Goba, B.; Balfour, R. J.; Nkambule, T. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011

The article investigates, first, the extent…

Rule, P. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) and Early Childhood Education (ECE) are the stepchildren of the South African education system in terms of resource allocation and public attention, and yet vitally inform the enterprise of lifelong learning and the prospects for developing a learning nation. The paucity of research on ECE and ABET, and…

Nkambule, T.; Balfour, R. J.; Pillay, G.; Moletsane, R. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
Historically, rurality and rural education have been marginalised bodies of knowledge in South Africa. The post-1994 era has seen an emerging government concern to address the continuing interplay between poverty, HIV/AIDS, underdevelopment, and underachievement in schools categorised as rural. To address these concerns, scholars in South African…

Molefe, S.; Bengesai, A.; Davey, B.; Goba, B.; Lekena, L.; Madiya, N.; Nkambule, T. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
Students within academic research projects usually assume a role of supporting the academics/scholars who are undertaking those research projects. The students' identity in this case is regarded as research assistants, with minimal valued input to the project itself. With time, however, this identity may change based on the roles and relationships…
