Higher Education Reform: Looking Back – Looking Forward

Pavel Zgaga Ulrich Teichler, Hans G. Schuetze, Andrä Wolter(eds.). Higher Education Reform: Looking Back – Looking Forward. Peter Lang – International Academic Publishers, 2015. ISBN: 978-3-631-66275-5. Pages: 430.

The central focus of this monograph is the concept of higher education reform in the light of an international and global comparative perspective. After decades of far-reaching reform, higher education around the world has profoundly changed and now has to face the challenges of the present. This volume takes a close look at these changes, the drivers of change, their effects and possible future scenarios. In their contributions the authors discuss a variety of basic concepts: learning and teaching in higher education; financing and quality assurance; governance change; massification vs. equity and equality; internationalization and mobility, the implementation of lifelong structures in higher education.
