  • Research management in African universities Reports
  • This report publishes the results of the first research management programme seminar, held in Durban, South Africa, from 1-3 April 2001. The seminar brought together representatives of eleven universities - five from South Africa and six from elsewhere on the continent - deliberately chosen to reflect different levels of current provision. The purpose of the event was twofold. First, it gave participants an opportunity to benchmark current activities in detail, and identify specific areas for development. Second, it provided the programme organisers with valuable insight into the current level of activity and barriers to further progress.

  • Gender Programme training module 7: Women and mentoring in higher education Tools
  • Part of the ACU Gender Programme training series, this is the seventh module. Produced by Colleen Chesterman (Australian), looks at the particular relevance of mentoring for higher education and argues that women, through their relatively limited access to higher management, are particularly well suited to mentoring relationships. The module examines the value of mentoring from a variety of angles, proposes training for both mentors and mentees, and considers the relative benefits of formal and informal systems.
