Beyond the university gates: Provision of Extended Curriculum Programmes in South Africa

Hutchings, Catherine; Garraway, James

Abstract:

The Rhodes University Foundation Seminar was planned at HELTASA in 2008 by Professor Chrissie Boughey and a group of HELTASA members with interest and experience in foundation curriculum. Academic literacy and the associated theme of access and success at university, digital literacy and different models of foundation at universities of technology were identified as key themes. A group of academics was then invited to present seminar papers on these critical aspects of the foundation curriculum which would be used as the basis for critical discussion of foundation provision with foundation representatives from all the universities. It was decided that the seminars should be written up as short papers as a resource for the delegates and for other foundation staff who did not attend the seminar.
