Entrepreneurialism in universities and the knowledge economy : diversification and organizational change in European higher education by Michael Shattock( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, which is the product of a major EU funded research programme and is based on 27 institutional case studies, attempts to offer answers to these questions through a series of cross national thematic studies. It considers how national systemic characteristics in financial arrangements, human resource management and institutional governance impact on entrepreneurialism and suggests ways in which individual initiative can be released and universities freed up to make their contribution to the EU Lisbon Strategy."--BOOK JACKET

Investing in the future : setting educational priorities in the Developing World by Jacques Hallak( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broadly defined, human resource development (HRD) involves the education, training, and utilization of human potentials for social and economic progress. Of five interdependent energizers for HRD (education, health and nutrition, the environment, employment, and political and economic freedom), education is an essential factor for improving all the others. Since the economic crisis facing developing countries poses grave problems for education and HRD, setting new priorities becomes a major priority for policymakers. This book, aimed at synthesizing fundamental educational policy issues, is divided into four parts. Part I is a comparative overview of the past, the present, and possible future conditions affecting education's progress in the developing world. In all societies, the goals of improving and expanding HRD are amply justified on ethical, cultural, social, and economic grounds. Part II, addressed to policy makers, discusses the various concepts, issues, factors, and methods to consider when setting objectives, priorities, and strategies for educational adaptation and expansion. Part III, addressed to practitioners, treats the implementation of educational policy, planning, and programs and projects. Following a discussion of various management and educational delivery issues, the special needs of underserved marginal groups are outlined and suggestions for institutional improvement are made. In part IV, addressed to donors, the implications for international cooperation are examined. (MLH)

Regional disparities in educational development : diagnosis and policies for reduction by Gabriel Carron( Book )

18 editions published in 1980 in English and French and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To complement a volume of case studies, these four papers and an introduction discuss the problem of regional disparities in educational development from several different perspectives. Varying points of view are presented on the relationship between regional educational disparities and socioeconomic, political, and cultural development; the pertinence of regional frameworks to analyses of educational disparities; and the problems associated with policies to reduce regional disparities. The introduction by the editors summarizes the papers' arguments about ways to reduce disparities. Philip Foster draws on data from Africa to examine regional inequalities in educational and economic development and to argue for the free play of supply and demand in reducing disparities. Using European countries as examples, Pierre Furter questions whether regional equalization can be reconciled with inter-regional cultural diversity. The paper by Stephen P. Heyneman reviews the problems involved in planning the reduction of regional disparities. The final paper, by Zsuzsa Ferge, Eva Havasi, and Julia Szalai, describes Hungary's use of state planning to reduce regional educational disparities. (Author/RW)

Planning the development of universities by International Institute for Educational Planning( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1975 in English and French and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents a summary of an international seminar held in 1969 on planning the development of universities. Two case studies of problems in Leningrad State University and the University of Sussex were the basis for the senimar. Discussions at the seminar can be categorized into six major areas: (1) higher education and economic and social development; (2) some aspects of teaching staff formation and the student body; (3) teaching and research programs; (4) innovation; (5) some problems of university planning and management; and (6) university information systems for planning. In addition, case studies are presented along with a discussion that can be classified into three areas: (1) teaching activity of the university and tendencies in its development; (2) scientific activity in the university and trends in its development; and (3) other aspects such as administration, publications, and libraries.

Population growth and costs of education in developing countries by Ngoc Châu Ta( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and French and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study reported in this document attempted to determine the effect of population growth on education costs in developing countries, given various assumptions as to the future trend of fertility and mortality. The population factor was examined along with other factors influencing educational costs, such as the improvement of enrollment ratios, the need for a qualitative improvement in the educational system, and the long term trends of the unit costs of education systems. Comparison of these factors, it was hoped, would provide data helpful to educational planners in deciding on an educational development policy to be followed. In order to ascertain more precisely the possible effects of these factors on educational costs, four national case studies were made in Ceylon, Colombia, Tanzania, and Tunisia. These case studies, limited to first-level education and teacher training, were conducted on a standard pattern to allow for a comparative analysis. Each case study is reported in a separate chapter, and two other sections of the document contain a synthesis report of the case studies and a model that shows the effect of demographic growth on the development and cost of first-level education and teacher training.

The process of educational innovation : an international perspective by Raymond S Adams( Book )

10 editions published in 1981 in English and French and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of recent educational innovation in seven different countries aims to provide an understanding of how innovation and reform can be made to work by focusing on process. Chapter 1 discusses common concerns such as national identity, as well as methodological problems. Chapters 2 and 3 describe the contrastive styles of educational planning in Indonesia, where innovation is based on research and development, and West Germany, which has approached educational reform primarily through legislation. While the efforts at educational innovation in Sierra Leone discussed in chapter 4 focus entirely on teacher training, the Israeli approach described in chapter 5 involves a project that has evolved at the municipal level without official support from the national Ministry of Education. Chapter 6, which describes the pragmatic-realist Malaysian "experiment in systematic adaptation," is followed in chapter 7 by a description of New Zealand's efforts to overcome "institutional inertia" by decentralization and innovation in the designs of school buildings. Finally, chapter 8 discusses the Ghanian attempt to introduce practical work into a basically traditional academic curriculum. Chapters 9 and 10 summarize the book's findings and conclusions and call for further research into the nature of educational innovation. (Jbm)
Qualitative aspects of educational planning by International Institute for Educational Planning( Book )

14 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, a compilation of 12 symposium papers presented by participants from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds, examines the qualitative aspects of educational planning with particular reference to developing countries. Following an overview paper that expresses the need for a change in educational planning strategy, the various aspects of the concept of quality in education are considered. The majority of papers discuss problems faced by developing countries in raising the quality level of some areas of their educational systems -- E.G., secondary education in India and higher technical education in the ussr. Two concluding papers discuss methods of measuring or assessing quality in education. An edited discussion bearing on each paper topic is provided. A related document is ed 044 767. (mlf)
Indicators of education systems by James N Johnstone( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 11 chapters with 54 data tables and 29 diagrams, the author discusses the theory, problems, and uses of educational indicators. He defines educational indicators as characteristics that point, with more or less exactness, to general or overall aspects of an educational system. Chapter 1 examines the concept of an educational indicator and the considerations to keep in mind when constructing indicators. Chapter 2 presents statistical issues involved with indicators, including their reliability and validity. The next two chapters look at both the theoretical and empirical aspects of developing indicators, while chapters 5 and 6 suggest national and regional indicators of educational inputs, outputs, and processers. The presentation and use of indicators for educational planning and research and for the classification of educational systems are covered in chapters 7-10. In the final chapter the author summarizes the implications of indicator development and use. Three appendices review methodological and statistical aspects of educational indicators. (Rw)

Educational planning and social change : report on an IIEP seminar by Unesco( Book )

8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the assumptions on which earlier models and approaches in educational planning were predicated have turned out to be over-simplistic, limited, or altogether not appropriate for the complex nature of the development process in many developed and, especially, underdeveloped societies. Recognizing these problems, the International Institute for Educational Planning (iiep) brought together a number of researchers, policy-makers, and planners from all parts of the world for a week of reflection and discussion on the past, present, and future of educational planning. This volume is a synthesis of the main results of this international forum, and it attempts to delineate the tasks for educational planning in the coming years. Chapters contain the texts of five background papers, with comments by iiep staff members; the edited versions of the reports of the three working groups; and a synthesis of the seminar discussions divided into five broad topics that reflect the convergence of discussion. The last chapter reviews some of the observations made at the seminar on research and training needs in educational planning. A paper, "Schooling and Future Society" by Johan Galtung, is included as an appendix. Seminar participants are listed. (Author/MLF)
