THE HIGHER EDUCATION TRANSFORMATION AGENDA IN SOUTH AFRICA -QUO VADIS?

The Colloquium will create a space for open dialogue and the interrogation of transformational challenges facing Higher Education Institutions in South Africa. The Colloquium will focus on the following three important aspects:

• Transformation in Higher Education: The Underpinning Ideology

-What do we mean by "Transformation"?
-What kind oftransformation would we like to see and embrace?
-What kind of transformation is currently manifested in universities and whether it is right and good?

• Transformation in Higher Education: Globalisation and Education

-What is an African University?
-How does the unique "African" nature impact on the didactic approach and the curricula?
-How does our uniqueness enable us to constructively enter into dialogue with the rest of the world?

• Transformation in Higher Education: The Student Experience

-The influence of party politics in Student Leadership -How does it serve the transformation agenda of the University?
