Changing University?

Overview

Higher education the world over appears to be going through dramatic change.

Overview

Higher education the world over appears to be going through dramatic change. In the UK the end of the binary line has meant an immediate increase in the number of universities, with added pressures on these institutions resulting in a wide range of competing claims on the energies and skills of university staff. But how far has the system really changed to meet the new challenges - and the old ones? This volume looks at changes in the student population, in teaching and learning processes, in funding, leadership and organizational styles. It places these in a broad international context, with contributions drawing on experience from North America, Australasia, Africa, Europe and the World Bank. It includes a perspective from further education and a look back at the last thirty years in UK higher education. The Changing University? shows that we need to think carefully before assuming that universities and the higher education system have really engaged with major change; and it examines alternative scenarios for the future.

Contributors look at changes in student population, teaching and learning processes, funding, leadership, and organizational styles in universities, focusing on the UK and also drawing on experiences in North America, Australia, Africa, and Europe. They offer a retrospective of the past 30 years in UK higher education, and examine alternative scenarios for the future. Topics include the change from the collegial academy to corporate enterprise, and the social and political vocation of the university in the global age. Distributed by Taylor & Franics. Annotation c.
