Research Report

CHED's research outputs reflect the diversity of academic development in contemporary South Africa, and the potential contribution of this work to a wider domain than the university alone. For example, the outputs range from software publications and online writing courses to more conventional journal articles, to research-based policy analysis and proposals directed to or commissioned by the Ministry of Education or other national higher-education bodies.
