Curriculum reform in higher education in South Africa: how academics respond

Muller, Johan; Ogude, Nthabiseng

Abstract:
 This paper charts the course of recent curricular reform in South African higher education from the good intentions of policy makers to the basics of programme planning and implementation.   In this chapter, the authors mention the legal framework which guided the process for transformation of the higher education system.  Concerns about  policy documents and authoritative bodies such as the National Qualifications Framework, SAQA, the Government's White Paper and the Council on Higher Education are included in the discussion.  The author also analyses the questions of curricular relevance, generic skills, interdisciplinarity and coherence.
