Higher education reformed by Peter Scott( file )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,033 libraries worldwide
Specially commissioned papers by some of the most respected academics currently working in the field of higher education, drawing the situation as it is now and looking forward to the developments of the coming years. Will 'Dearing' prove to be little more than a stop-gap? What will be the balance of power between education institutions, the state and the private sector? What are the realities behind 'lifelong learning, ' and form will it take if it steps out of the realms of theory?
Re-thinking science : knowledge and the public in an age of uncertainty by Helga Nowotny( Book )
31 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 487 libraries worldwide
Re-Thinking Science presents an account of the dynamic relationship between society and science. Despite the mounting evidence of a much closer, interactive relationship between society and science, current debate still seems to turn on the need to maintain a 'line' to demarcate them. The view persists that there is a one-way communication flow from science to society - with scant attention given to the ways in which society communicates with science. The authors argue that changes in society now make such communications both more likely and more numerous, and that this is transfor

This text describes and analyzes the links between the growth of mass higher education systems and the radical processes of globalization, which include not only round-the-clock, round-the-world markets and information technologies but revolutionary conceptions of time and space.

The meanings of mass higher education by Peter Scott( Book )
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
This book is the first systematic attempt to analyse the growth of mass higher education in a specifically British context, while seeking to develop more theoretical perspectives on this transformation of elite university systems into open post-secondary education systems. It is divided into three main sections. The first examines the evolution of British higher education and the development of universities and other institutions. The second explores the political, social and economic context within which mass systems are developing. What are the links between post-industrial society, a post-Fordist economy and the mass university? The third section discusses the links between massification and wider currents in intellectual and scientific culture

European higher education at the crossroads between the Bologna process and national reforms by Adrian Curaj( file )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Romania hosts the 2012 Bologna / European Higher Education Area Ministerial Conference and the Third Bologna Policy Forum. In preparation for these meetings, The Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) organised the Future of Higher Education - Bologna Process Researchersâ Conference (FOHE-BPRC) in Bucharest on 17-19 October 2011, with the support of the European University Association (EUA) and the Romanian National Committee for UNESCO. The conference brought the voices of researchers into international-level policy making in higher education. The results of the conference are presented in this book. Until now, empirical evidence supporting policies and reforms in higher education has often been a matter of local or regional focus. The development of a pan-European process in higher education policy drives a need to explore wider research topics on which to base policies. This book offers an unprecedented opportunity for higher education researchers to interact and contribute to the political process shaping the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), and to national policy agendas in more than 100 participant countries for the 2012 ministerial events. The book collects more than 50 articles focusing on vital issues in European higher education. These are arranged in sections addressing the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) Principles; Teaching and Learning; Quality Assurance; Mobility; Higher Education Governance in the EHEA; Funding of Higher Education; Diversification of Higher Education Missions; Higher Education Futures and Foresight
