WELCOME MESSAGE FROM VICE CHANCELLOR, PROF. M.S. LEBESE
It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to a problem-solving platform that is set to fast-track you on your academic research endeavors. Notice that it is a center set up to put you in the center of our focus in pursuit of your research activity. It is this that makes this G-CAR unique. You, the learner, are the focus of attention throughout until your theses or dissertation is complete. You the learner are at the center or the core of what we do. You are likened to the g-force, which is a measurement of the type of acceleration that causes a perception of weight. When your research progress is accelerated, only then can a measurement be taken. You will be mechanically forced to enhance your progression because you are at the center of this compulsive act. ‘The g-force acceleration (except certain electromagnetic force influences) is the cause of an object's acceleration in relation to free fall. ‘ Through the G-CAR programme, you will not be allowed free fall nor a free hike but will be propelled to greater heights here to be reached. You all know that in many institutions of higher learning students take forever to complete their postgraduate research work due to a number of challenges in South African Universities noted by Costa (2018) as:
Delays in receiving feedback from supervisors
Lack of guidelines stipulating supervision
Poor supervision - i.e. no schedule for meetings, no records of discussions, etc.
No mechanisms for redress (40%)
Supervisors always too busy to meet students
Inadequate preparation for postgraduate study
Heavy teaching loads for faculty members
Unnecessary administrative assignments
With the above in mind, G-CAR is poised to address the issues in the interest of the student in the center of the academic platform. G-CAR welcomes all students from different institutions of higher learning who need support in their research activity. I look forward to meeting you in our next contact session.
