Burt Humanities, Social Sciences and Law Springer Police Pursuit Driving Geoffrey P. This chapter pays special attention to that how mass higher education is related to political, economic, and societal changes. The E-mail message field is required. With all the focus falling on science and technology, especially of an applied kind, there is insufficient attention given to the social sciences and to the broader role of creative and interpretative scholarship, including work in the humanities and the arts. Higher education in Mexico is under an ongoing transition process influenced by global tendencies. Based on these discussions, this chapter concludes that higher education is at the crossroads in the post-massified stage in East Asian countries. Entretanto, e como veremos adiante, o Facebook parece ainda não ter alcançado esse objetivo pedagógico aqui.
As faculty members are central to the teaching, research and service enterprise activities of higher education, it is important to understand their personal characteristics, career trajectories, sense of identity and commitment, and job satisfaction. Results of the study show that there is still little scientific production in English, in the investigated area, yielding a low number of international citations received by articles published in the journals of the analyzed area. Economic Crisis and the Post-massification of Higher Education; J. As we have observed over the past five to six decades, the current period of contemporary globalization consists of an interrelated set of structures and dynamics that appears to function as a highly complex system for which outcomes are often problematic and unpredictable. The legal status of the university was changed from a regular national university to a incorporated university in 2012.

With that aim, the study reviews language policies and internationalization programs in Brazil regarding the role of foreign languages in general and of English in particular.
This chapter conceptualizes research-driven teaching and learning from the university development perspective. The challenge of establishing world-class universities. Results of the study suggest that during the period analyzed these two variables remained stable, thus confirming the hypothesis raised. The major challenge is how to harmonize different missions, e. The triple function has become questionable and research now dominates the other two functions in contemporary higher education. We also need to ask questions about whether that model is optimal for the spread of knowledge within universities, and its broader social dissemination, including relations between university and non-university research.
The triple function has become questionable and research now dominates the other two functions in contemporary higher education. Nevertheless, the unexpected results from the expansion of higher education since the mid-1990s in fact have created concerns over the issue of educational opportunity and quality. After examining Asia-Pacific research publication data from the Web of Science, we find a few stylized facts: 1 increasing research collaboration, 2 growing policy evaluation research, 3 swelling empirical research with quantitative methodology and 4 growing attention to higher education. A national quality assurance agency and its research arms also promote the deepening of higher education research in Taiwan. This chapter provides a conceptual framework for the book. In addition, the incoming large-scale higher education restructuring due to the rapidly declining birth rate has become an unstable factor to the development of this emerging field. Finally, we find a significant difference in research impact and diffusion between Asia-Pacific and American education policy studies.
A review of major current issues in higher education is the customary starting point for reflecting on possible scenarios. Our results indicate that research collaboration, national context, publication year and issue, policy area, and research methodology are significantly associated with publication citations. Martin Humanities, Social Sciences and Law Springer Teaching and Measuring Cognitive Readiness Harold F. Regular national universities are considered a government organization, and their personnel, finance, and organizational structure are tightly controlled by central government. An economic crisis is the most influential environmental factor on contemporary higher education. The available data suggest that the conditions in the various European countries would be too diverse to find a starting point for convergent or common policies. The University in the Context of Continuing Globalization; D.
Vertical diversity according to quality ranks and horizontal diversity spread according to substantive profiles. Also, research has addressed potentially relevant issues even earlier than the actors in the higher education systems themselves in order to deliver results when the awareness of respective problems is only beginning to be perceived by the public. Tipton Humanities, Social Sciences and Law Springer Language and the Right to Fair Hearing in International Criminal Trials Catherine S. Finally, this chapter overviews how the institutional factors such as the higher education model in each country are intertwined with external factors—globalization—in the neoliberal transformation of higher education governance. Teachers perceive the incorporation of such resources as an extra burden. The authors suggest higher education policy in Mexico is shaped by dominant voices that exert their power to keep current hegemonic relations that benefit those in top positions. The aim of this study is to reflect about the interconnectedness of globalization, the internationalization process of universities and the construction of social capital through education in emerging countries.
The European University in Comparative Historical Perspective, Entremons. A fim de subsidiar a discussão proposta no artigo, um estudo de caso foi realizado e descreve a criação de uma Coordenação de Letramento Internacional dentro da estrutura da Secretaria de Relações Internacionais da Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo.

Also, issues of sociobiographic background and education have not been prominent at all in efforts at improving information relevant for evidence-based policy. This book seeks to address the issue of the teaching and research, a controversial topic in higher education research, using empirical comparative data—the Changing Academic Profession survey in 2007. In addition, this chapter conceptualizes contemporary higher education as post-massification, and then compares how post-massification differs from elite and mass higher education in terms of teaching and research.
On the Move towards a New Convergent Design of Higher Education Systems? The Scholarship of Teaching, Research, and Service; J. In such a situation, the core question becomes how to survive without rapid tuition increases. This book examines the different situations facing the academic profession in individual countries and provides comparative studies of country differences. One major environmental change is managerial reforms under the neo-liberalism. Globalization increasingly calls for comparing educational policies across countries.
Pârvan, Vasile Datoria vieții noastre. The Internationalization of the University as a Response to Globalization: An East Asian Perspective; A. The massification process rapidly proceeded through the early 1980s and the mid-1990s as a result of government policies. It argues that student development, knowledge production, and the economic crisis are logical grounds in support of this. Yet, paradoxically, even while research has become ever more central, to the point where its symbolic and economic importance have been markedly exaggerated, the policy conception of university research has gravely narrowed. Diversification by the type of higher education institution played a major role in many economically advanced countries, but was supplemented and partly substituted by the levels of the study programs and the ranks between individual institutions.
Academic capitalism and the new economy: Markets, state, and higher education. While universities in the Middle Ages were primarily teaching institutions, since the establishment of Berlin University in 1810, there has been much discussion of the relation between teaching and research in higher education. A striking feature of the present period is the growing pluralization of research power as more nations and institutions secure a prominent role in world science, especially nations in East Asia. The possible contribution of higher education to the equality of opportunity has not been high on the agenda in European policy discourse in recent years. Also, they assert the detrimental effects of current policies deserve to be explored. But the incorporated national universities have a relatively flexible management free from tight government control.
