Status and evolution of research within South African technikons: a critical analysis

Ogude, N.A.; Netswera, F.G.; Mavundla, T.

Abstract:
This article focuses on the redefinition of South Africa's Colleges for Advanced Technical Education into research organisations in higher learning.  It reports results of the first phase of a project into the impact of national policies intended ' to cultivate the culture of the much-needed applied research ' in higher education and to fill the gap left by universities.   National policies were analysed and representatives from national policy making bodies interviewed.  Inconsistencies between the different policy documents, practical problems emerging at the implementation stage and views of the Technikon umbrella organisation, on the progress so far made are discussed.
