Abstract

this chapter reports on the restructuring of the Bachelor of Education (BEd) qualification at North West University (NWU). The interest is in how the curriculum was shaped by dynamics related to new national policies and regulations, complex institutional change at the university and their mediation by academics who shaped the curriculum in particular ways.
