Re-thinking science : knowledge and the public in an age of uncertainty by Helga Nowotny( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member 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 transforming science not only in its research practices and the institutions that support it but also deep in its epistemological core. To explain these changes, Nowotny, Scott and Gibbons have developed an open, dynamic framework for re-thinking science. The authors conclude that the line which formerly demarcated society from science is regularly transgressed and that the resulting closer interaction of science and society signals the emergence of a new kind of science: contextualized or context-sensitive science. The co-evolution between society and science requires a more or less complete re-thinking of the basis on which a new social contract between science and society might be constructed. In their discussion the authors present some of the elements that would comprise this new social contract

The globalization of higher education by Peter Scott( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

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.

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)

The European higher education area : between critical reflections and future policies by Adrian Curaj( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the gap between higher education research and policy making was always a challenge, but the recent calls for more evidence-based policies have opened a window of unprecedented opportunity for researchers to bring more contributions to shaping the future of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Encouraged by the success of the 2011 first edition, Romania and Armenia have organised a 2nd edition of the Future of Higher Education - Bologna Process Researchers' Conference (FOHE-BPRC) in November 2014, with the support of the Italian Presidency of the European Union and as part of the official EHEA agenda. Reuniting over 170 researchers from more than 30 countries, the event was a forum to debate the trends and challenges faced by higher education today and look at the future of European cooperation in higher education. The research volumes offer unique insights regarding the state of affairs of European higher education and research, as well as forward-looking policy proposals. More than 50 articles focus on essential themes in higher education: Internationalization of higher education; Financing and governance; Excellence and the diversification of missions; Teaching, learning and student engagement; Equity and the social dimension of higher education; Education, research and innovation; Quality assurance, The impacts of the Bologna Process on the EHEA and beyond and Evidence-based policies in higher education. "The Bologna process was launched at a time of great optimism about the future of the European project - to which, of course, the reform of higher education across the continent has made a major contribution. Today, for the present, that optimism has faded as economic troubles have accumulated in the Euro-zone, political tensions have been increased on issues such as immigration and armed conflict has broken out in Ukraine. There is clearly a risk that, against this troubled background, the Bologna process itself may falter. There are already signs that it has been downgraded in some countries with evidence of political withdrawal. All the more reason for the voice of higher education researchers to be heard. Since the first conference they have established themselves as powerful stakeholders in the development of the EHEA, who are helping to maintain the momentum of the Bologna process. Their pivotal role has been strengthened by the second Bucharest conference." Peter Scott, Institute of Education, London (General Rapporteur of the FOHE-BPRC first edition)

Theology, ideology, and liberation : towards a liberative theology by Peter Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How is theology liberating? In the context of a post-Gorbachev world, where many demand freedom which the Western powers seem ill-equipped to deliver, is it even possible to envisage a liberative theology? Taking as his starting point the Marxist complaint that Christianity is ideological, Peter Scott argues that it is not enough for Christian theology to talk about liberation: it must be liberative. Stressing with feminist and liberation theologies the embodied, contextual nature of theology, the constructive proposal made here locates God's liberating abundance toward society in an interpretation of resurrection as social. Only in this way, in the author's view, can a trinitarian Christian account of liberation be adequately grounded. The book will be of interest to all those who wish to know if theology may speak truthfully about the transformation of society: it offers the shape of a liberative theology pointing towards social freedom
