Abstract:This book tells the story of the South Africa Norway Tertiary Education Development (SANTED) Programme in the form of contributions by those who have been most involved in the programme. The initial agreement was for 2000-2005, followed by a five-year extension. By the end in 2010, the programme had activities in sixteen universities, spanning seven countries (Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia) under three thematic areas (access, retention and success; capacity building; and SADC (Southern African Development Community) collaboration) and one subtheme (multilingualism). After an introduction by Trish Gibbon, the first two chapters by Nasima Badsha (promoting South African reform objectives) and Inger Kristine Stoll (the Norwegian perspective) set out the circumstances that gave birth to this programme and the careful negotiations that established the primary terms of the agreement. Other chapters: the role of the SANTED Secretariat (Trish Gibbon); improving student throughput and success within an equity framework (Colleen Howell); multilingualism for teaching and learning (Pamela Maseko); challenges relating to the establishment of comprehensive universities in the South African higher education sector (Martin Oosthuizen); cross-border collaboration in the SADC countries (Fazela Haniff and Trish Gibbon); and a summing up by Robert Smith.
