Themane, M. J. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
How we conceive what a curriculum is or not determines how we theorise, practice and define it. There are two conceptions of a curriculum: the narrow view and the broad view. This article sets out to demonstrate how these two views are developed. This demonstration is drawn from the recent reviews by the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC)…

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
It is widely known that there is a dearth of education research in South Africa which takes as its methodological basis experimentation.

The article investigates, first, the extent…
