  12. Integrating HIV and AIDS education in pre-service mathematics education for social justice

    Since 1999, many South African education policy documents have mandated integration of HIV & AIDS education in learning areas/disciplines. Policy document research has shown that although South African politicians and managers have produced volumes of eloquent and compelling legislation regarding provision for HIV & AIDS education, little of this is translated into action. The impact of HIV & AIDS permeates the social, economic and political arenas in South Africa. Integration of HIV & AIDS education across disciplines can serve as a strategy to further the ideals of social justice. …

  13. Sex and relationships education in further education settings: Exploratory research

    The present study is exploratory in nature, examining SRE in FE settings from the perspective of both student service managers (or a comparable person) within colleges as well as students. The authors describe trends in SRE across colleges as well as areas for improvement. More specifically, they examine the following research questions: To what extent is SRE available in FE and sixth form colleges? Which FE students receive SRE? What are the core SRE topic areas for 16-19-year-olds and are these being delivered? What is the format of SRE delivery? …

  15. Case studies in mainstreaming: integrating HIV and AIDS realities into South African higher education curricula

    Curriculum development is one of the most noticeable areas requiring attention in higher education: a limited curriculum integration is cited as a general weakness of institutional responses to HIV and AIDS. In the immediate future, integration of HIV and AIDS into curriculum must be a priority for institutions and funders. This document can be used as a toolkit, a hand-book to successfully integrating HIV and AIDS into the curricula of higher education. It is based on case studies, offering a multidimensional benchmark of interventions that should serve as a model to other institutions.
