Educational transformation: towards re-imagining higher education

  • B van Wyk


This article uses conceptual analysis to explore logically necessary conditions of educational transformation vis-à-vis higher education and its concomitant constitutive meanings. I contend that equity and redress, critical inquiry, communicative praxis and citizenship constitute necessary conditions which make possible the occurrence of higher education transformation. Of the four conditions, I analyse the condition of "citizenship" in terms of a re-imagined notion of higher education. I explore several features of a re-imagined notion of citizenship in relation to educational transformation.
