EDUCATION

In looking at the construction of curriculum from a trans- and multidisciplinary perspective at the higher education level, this book initiates and supports the issues of curriculum design and purposes, especially in fields outside the discipline of educational studies. Dr Eileen Raymond State University of New York at Potsdam, USA

IN SOUTH AFRICA

A great strength of the book is its ability to face out from South Africa and deal with theories and issues to do with curriculum which affect all of us in higher education ... an interesting, engaging and vibrant book. Prof Gina Wisker Brighton University, UK

A scholarly look behind the scenes

Together the chapters contribute to a book that is quite broad in scope, whereas the individual chapters add a depth of analysis that is often lacking in higher education studies. The chapters are on the whole very rigorously researched, well written and offer many fascinating insights into both the concept of ‘curriculum’ but also of change in a contemporary higher education context. Dr Kelly Coate National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland

HIGHER

At once evocative and suggestive, this exemplary book gives me hope that educators and scholars across the world will seize the opportunity to self-reflect and enlarge and enrich both their research and their practice in ways that will markedly contribute to the revitalisation of the higher learning in the twenty-first century. The urgency of the need for revitalisation of both research and practice in this domain of inquiry cannot be overstated. Prof Clifton Conrad University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

The background information should primarily be considered when SANS 10160 is evaluated for acceptance into design practice as a South African National Standard. It should also serve as the point of departure for the inevitable future revision and updating of SANS 10160. The Background Report is not intended to serve as a commentary on the future use of SANS 10160 in design practice. However, the information reported here should provide additional understanding as a complementary source in cases where critical consideration of design implications is required. A high degree of harmonisation of SANS 10160 with Eurocode is achieved. Consistency between SANS 10160 and Eurocode is clearly presented and motivated in the Background Report. JOHAN RETIEF AND PETER DUNAISKI (Editors) Stellenbosch University Institute of Structural Engineering



This book represents a considerable amount of work that has been done in the development of the new SANS 10160 code of practice, which replaces SABS 0160:1989. The contributions of the book are in several areas, including: (i) The process of code development; (ii) The new Eurocode and its background; (iii) Discussion and comparison of provisions from various international codes; (iv) The basis of structural design and reliability; (v) Reasons for the selection of parameter values and approaches selected for SANS 10160. The book will be useful both to engineers requiring specialist information, and to the developers of the next revision of SANS 101060. The work done on SANS 10160 is among the first examples of the Eurocode being adapted for a country outside Europe, and is of interest to researchers in Europe, South Africa and other parts of the world. PROF CHRIS ROTH Department of Civil Engineering, University of Pretoria

EDITOR | KARIN VAN MARLE

The book provides practising SA structural design engineers with the background to and justification for the changes proposed in the new SANS 10160 standard. The publication of SANS 10160 will be the culmination of a period of concerted effort by a SAICE working group to review various modern structural design standards around the world and having done so, the working group proposed a revision of SABS 0160 which will align the SA standard with the most suitable of these international standards.

Background to SANS 10160

The Draft South African Loading Code SANS 10160 Basis for structural design and actions for buildings and industrial structures represents a substantial revision of the present Standard SABS 0160:1989 (Amended 1993). Proper substantiation of the changes and additions is therefore required. The Background Report captures the main sources of reference, assessments, decisions and motivations applied in the formulation of SANS 10160.

New from SUN MeDIA MeTRO: Church Emerging from the cracks – a church IN, but not OF the world “This book is a most valuable and urgently needed South African voice describing the paradigmatic changes in theology – and epistemology in general.

SUN MeDIA Stellenbosch produced two exceptional publications for the Department of Visual Arts, Stellenbosch University SEE KAYAMANDI SEE YOURSELF Social Responsibility and Citizenship Project for Visual Communication Design Students A group of graphic design students and Kayamandi high school learners embarked on a project of mapping Kayamandi, a township in Stellenbosch. Student-learner partners were encouraged to explore various facets of social, personal, environmental, historical and cultural life in their documentation of the area. The process of collaboration between young people from radically different life-worlds, who (often) hold deeply-ingrained suspicions and preconceptions about each other, is manifested in the product of that interaction. ACTION RESEARCH – Learning Life Skills in Kayamandi A group of third-year graphic design students and Kayamandi high school learners came together to uncover and discuss the particular skills needed to survive in the small township of Kayamandi. Visual documentation and eventually typographic layouts evolved out of the discussions between student-learner partners.

Anne-Marié Peyper

Anne-Marié Peyper, ’n ma van drie volwasse kinders, het vier jaar aan die Potchefstroomse Universiteit (tans die Noordwes-Universiteit) gestudeer. Sy is ’n voedsel- en dieetkenner met meer as 30 jaar ondervinding op hierdie gebied. Sy gee landwyd lesings en demonstrasies om veral die nuwe mammas te leer hoe om gesonde, organiese voedsel vinnig en maklik voor te berei. Anne-Marié se sprankelende en gemaklike styl van kosmaak, met hope kortpad-wenke, is baie in voeling met die behoeftes van die hedendaagse moderne ouer. Sy glo ook dat meeste toestande, soos ATHV (aandagtekort hiperaktiwiteit versteuring) en allergieë, deur die regte kossoorte grootliks by kinders voorkom en verbeter kan word. Mamma, wat kan ek in my mond sit? is haar tweede boek. Haar eerste boek is Garnering en Tafelversierings. E-posadres: peyperannemarie@gmail.com

Community Engagement

NEWSLETTER Community Engagement Plan and Strategy The CE plan is now in the final stages of its submission. The plan encompasses the philosophy of CE, Vision 2020, STEPS and its strategies. The compilation of the plan was a collective effort of members of the CE committee and faculties. Of value contained in the plan, is the articulation of the following: CE facilitates to maintain and enhance the University’s standing as a significant contributor to the social and economic environment. It engages in the community via their partnerships in the following ways; intellectually, educationally, culturally and economically. The communities can be local, regional, national and international communities.

Database of CE Due to the revision of the plan, the CE database and template was also revised. Consequently, the following categories of CE are evident; Integration of Research and CE; Integration of Teaching and Learning and CE, Integration of Teaching and Learning, Research and CE; CE and Innovation, and CE, TL, Research and Innovation. The emerging foci areas are; t Eradicating poverty and related conditions t Promoting human dignity and health t Increasing social capacity t Development t Education t Balancing a sustainable environment with a competitive industry The following activities illustrates the happenings at CUT in the past quarter.

Wheels of Hope The Wheels of Hope focuses on the diagnostic and treatment aspects of heart and lung conditions as well as training and education programmes in central South Africa. One of these aspects is rheumatic fever (RF), which is a delayed sequel to a throat infection caused by a group A-streptococcus. More than one third of affected children develop carditis, followed by progressive and permanent valvular lesions, known as rheumatic heart disease (RHD). Over a million people live with rheumatic valvular disease in sub-Saharan Africa. However, in central South Africa no information is available on prevalence rates, feasibility of mass programmes for its detection, or on the adequacy or effectiveness of present methods of secondary prophylaxis. It is suspected that several patients diagnosed as having RF or RHD are not under continuous medical care and are not receiving regular prophylactic treatment.  Therefore, the aim of the project is to implement a surveillance programme to acquire information on the overall prevalence of RHD and to assess its load on healthcare services in central South Africa. This project is sponsored by John Williams Motors in Bloemfontein, Rosepark Hospital and private contributions from our surgeons. Written by Dr L. Botes

The essays elaborate and expand the meaning and significance of critique through an engagement with aesthetic forms. Imagined Liberation – Xenophobia, Citizenship and Identity in South Africa, Germany and Canada Why would a society that liberated itself in the name of human rights turn against people who escaped human rights violations at home? Why do former victims become victimizers? This comparative study by Professors Heribert Adam (Simon Fraser University) and Kogila Moodley (University of British Columbia) explores what xenophobic societies can learn from other immigrant societies which avoided the backlash against multiculturalism in Europe.
