The interest group envisages the advancement of academic excellence within the interdisciplinary fields of Higher and Adult Education, taking into account the context of Curriculum Studies as a field of inquiry.
This vision is supported by the following general values:
- Academic integrity
- Integration, and
The interest group strives at enhancing the work of the Centre of Higher and Adult Education, the Department of Curriculum Studies and the Faculty of Education through
- quality research and service to both postgraduate students and the education community at large,
- disseminating research results,
- collegial interaction and co-operation as well as
- critical engagement and debate
The existence of the interest group is justified by the fact that while both the fields of higher and adult education requires specialist inquiry, they are closely related to other fields of education. While the interest group thus focuses on the challenges and relevant problems of higher and adult education, its focus is relatively broad. It is important for us not to plan and work in isolation from the broader field of education as co-operation and mutual inquiry might be beneficial to both. It also seems imperative to continuously reflect on research and other priorities that might direct or influence the work of the Centre and the Department of Curriculum Studies both inside and outside of Stellenbosch University.
