39TH SOUTHERN AFRICAN SOCIETY FOR EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD IN ZIMBABWE FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Southern African Society for Education (SASE) brings together, through its annual international conference, academics from the Southern African region. This has an advantage of exposing academics to a broader spectrum of educational issues and how the different countries address them. It also encourages sharing of experiences, and makes academics more aware of educational systems of their neighbouring countries. This creates fertile ground for cross-border academic collaborations on common issues. SASE offers a platform for a voice of Africa on educational matters affecting the Southern African region of the African continent.
The 2003 SASE conference was initially scheduled to be held in Zimbabwe but could not. For the first time in the history of SASE its annual International Conference will be held at Zimbabwe from 4 – 6 October 2012. It will be hosted by the Great Zimbabwe University, Masvingo, Zimbabwe. The theme of the conference is:
“ACCESS, QUALITY AND EQUITY IN EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTHERN AFRICA”
Educational aspects to be discussed in the conference include:
Gender Issues in Education, Women in Education, Leadership and Management, Work Related Learning, HIV and AIDS management, Prevention and Sexuality Education, Entrepreneurship and Education, Intellectual Property Rights
LOCATION OF THE GREAT ZIMBABWE UNIVERSITY
The Great Zimbabwe University is currently situated 7 km east of Masvingo town along the Old Great Zimbabwe Road at Masvingo Teachers’ College. Its main location is going to be 30 km from the City of Masvingo, near the Great Zimbabwe Monuments, where a bigger University Campus will be built.

THE GREAT ZIMBABWE HOTEL
Great Zimbabwe is about 27km south-east of Masvingo town. You can get a mini-bus from behind the TM Supermarket in Masvingo, costing about US$1 and taking about 20 minutes. The mini-bus drops you at a turnoff about 2km from the gate to the ruins, you then walk past a craft market and through the Great Zimbabwe Hotel to reach the ruins. You can also get a taxi from Masvingo, and the ruins are visited by many overland trucks and other organised tours. Entry to the ruins is $15 for foreigners. You may get a discount if you have a SADC passport / residence permit
Great Zimbabwe Monuments
Three official languages are in use; thus English, Ndebele and Shona. Several indigenous languages such as Shangani/Tsonga, Venda, Kalanga, Nambia, Tonga, Barwe etc. are spoken. Local languages are used as languages of instruction in elementary schools.
ARRIVING IN ZIMBABWE
Zimbabwe can be accessed by air and road. Major road entry points are Victoria Falls, Kariba, Chirundu and Nyamapanda (North), Forbes , Machipanda and Sango (East), Beit Bridge (South) and Plumtree (West). The major airports are Harare, J.M. Nkomo (Bulawayo) and Victoria Falls. Masvingo, is currently most serviced by the airlines that fly into Zimbabwe so transfers must be personally made by individuals from the three major air ports of entry, being Victoria Falls, Harare International and J.M. Nkomo airports. At each of these ports of entry, delegates are expected to complete Customs and Emigration formalities. As with most ports of entry, please be vigilant at all times, watch your luggage and be aware of pickpockets.
