The meanings of mass higher education by Peter Scott( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the transformation of British higher education from a closed, elite university system into an open, mass post-secondary education system. It sees the changes in British higher education as stemming from: (1) the rapid expansion in the number of students that created pressures for a shift to a mass, open post-secondary education system; (2) the resulting erosion of the distinctive qualities of British higher education, with less rigid institutional boundaries and hierarchies; and (3) post-industrial social, political, and economic changes. Separate chapters of the book trace the evolution of British higher education, the development of a national system, and the changes in institutional systems and structures; explore the political, social, and economic contexts that created the mass higher education systems; and examine the effects of intellectual and scientific culture the interdependence of the university, science, and culture, the university's changing role in scientific training and technology innovation, and the shift from subject-based teaching to student-centered learning. While the book speaks generally to the British system, it notes that open mass education is a worldwide phenomenon and relates the British experiences to similar transformations in Europe, Australia, and the United States. (Individual chapters contain reference notes.) (Ch)

Governing universities : changing the culture? by Catherine Bargh( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports on a British research project involving a questionnaire survey of 494 university governors and a multi-site case study analysis to examine how different types of higher education institutions (especially "old" and "new" universities and colleges) converge and/or diverge in their governance styles. Chapter 1 introduces the study and its historical and policy context. Chapter 2 considers the concepts, often contested, of governance and management in modern higher education systems. Chapters 3 and 4 focus on governors themselves their backgrounds and perceptions of higher education and how they are appointed. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 look at governors in the organizational setting: the place of governing bodies in organizational structures, their role in institutional decision-making, and key relationships with vice chancellors and others. Chapter 8 offers comparative perspectives by discussing recent changes in governance cultures in the rest of the public sector, the private sector, and in the government of universities in Europe and the United States. Finally, chapter 9 summarizes the main conclusions and offers an agenda for future action. This agenda urges that governing bodies be more representative and principles and practices of open government be applied. Appended are a description of the research methodology and specific results. (Contains 85 references.) (Dm)
