Geography of African Development : an alternative curriculum

Fox, R.C. (2005) Geography of African Development : an alternative curriculum. South African Geographical Journal, 87 (1). pp. 1-9. ISSN 0373-6245




The Geography of African Development module is part of a year-long Third Year level geography course on Africa that has been offered at Rhodes University since 2002. The course is an exception to the dominant trend, both locally and internationally, which has witnessed a major decline in the teaching of regional geography and area studies. This paper examines how adopting a constructivist approach to the module's curriculum enabled learners to develop geographical skills at the same time as Africanising the curriculum.
