Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa: Reflections on Phase 1 and Planning Phase 2

Event place / date

24–26 October 2011, Lanzerac, Stellenbosch

Aims of Meeting

In doing an overview of HERANA 1 we will review the research process, outputs and some responses received thus far. We also want to discuss some ‘uses’ of the findings. In discussing HERANA 2 we want to give an overview of the whole project, sub-projects included, and to discuss in some detail the data to be collected during phase 2. The discussion will include data definition, collection and analysis as well as capacity development in this area. We will also discuss the proposed comparative study of National Higher Education Councils/Commissions.
