Volume 28, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1011-3487



This study was undertaken in an attempt to arrive at an appropriate perspective on how both academic staff and students at universities perceive curriculum development.

Amongst others, the study aimed to investigate ways of developing and aligning the existing curriculum to global needs.
