The Decolonial Turn: Is CHED there yet?

Since the student protests of 2015 and 2016, UCT, like many other universities in South Africa, has been grappling with the conceptual understanding of a “decolonised curriculum”. The Curriculum Change Working Group (CCWG), appointed by the VC in 2016, has facilitated various engagements across the campus on different curriculum approaches to develop responses to the calls for “decolonisation” and “transformation” in HE.

It is against this backdrop and in keeping with the intention of UCT’s Strategic Planning Framework that the CHED Transformation Committee decided to embark on a series of participatory conversations on the urgent topic of Decolonisation of the Curriculum in CHED.
