The effects of massification on higher education in Africa

Mohamedbhai, Goolam

Abstract:
This study on the effects of massification on higher education in Africa is a follow-up to a study on higher education innovations in Sub-Saharan Africa undertaken by the WGHE in 2004. That study revealed that there were very few innovations reported by African higher education institutions on issues concerning optimal utilization of space, student accommodation, maintenance of physical facilities, etc., all of which relate directly to the massive increase of student enrolment, or massification. It was therefore decided to identify a few institutions to examine how they were addressing the challenges posed by massification in innovative ways, and share these experiences.
