In March 2019, students and researchers from Germany, the USA, China, Kenya and South Africa came together at the University of Tuebingen to discuss Educational Governance from an international perspective. The group was mainly comprised of Ph.D.- and Master-students from various disciplines - Education, Literature, Philosophy, Political Science - and debated questions such as: What are the distinctive and different rationales underlying the discourse of Educational Governance and its political, economic, academic and pedagogic objectives? How can we make these rationales visible and which theories and analytic tools can help us to decipher the meanings attached to them? Are there different local and national trajectories in education discourse and practice with regard to Educational Governance and which role do international organizations and transnational transfer play? This edited volume displays these discussions and aims at initiating a broader communication about Educational Governance between previously separated spaces.

Essential reading for policy makers, institutional leaders, managers, advisors, and scholars in the field of higher education, International Perspectives on the Governance of Higher Education analyzes how the governance of higher education systems has evolved in recent years. This volume is an authoritative overview with contributions from authors from the U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal, Norway, Italy, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Comprehensive in coverage, this volume explores how the use of disciplinary approaches and frameworks, particularly from political science, public administration and public policy help us to understand better the coordination of higher education systems. This is an arduous but gratifying challenge, given the current complexity of multi-actor and multi-level steering in higher education, rife with unintended outcomes and unanticipated dynamics. The edited volume looks to: The role of government, market and network steering in higher education systems. Governance in the knowledge society. How the use of disciplinary approaches help to better understand the steering policy processes and outcomes in higher education. Empirical studies exploring governance issues across systems and over time within systems.

This volume offers a critical examination of the Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA), focusing on its origins and implementation, relationship to other international large-scale assessments, and its impacts on educational policy and reform at national and cross-national levels. Using empirical data gathered from a research project carried out by the CeiED at Lusophone University, Lisbon, the text highlights connections between PISA and emergent issues including the international circulation of big science, expertise, and policy, and identifies its conceptual and methodological limits as a global governance project. The volume ultimately provides a novel framework for understanding how OECD priorities are manifested through a regulatory instrument based in Human and Knowledge Capital Theory, and so makes a powerful case to search for new humanistic approaches. This text will benefit researchers, academics, and educators with an interest in education policy and politics, international and comparative education, and the sociology of education more broadly. Those interested in the history of education will also benefit from this volume.

This book addresses three central questions in contemporary university governance: (1) How and why has academic governance in Anglophone nations changed in recent years and what impact have these changes had on current practices? (2) How do power relations within universities affect decisions about teaching and research and what are the implications for academic voices? (3) How can those involved in university governance and management improve academic governance processes and outcomes and why is it important that they do so? The book explores these issues in clear, concise and accessible language that will appeal to higher education researchers and governance practitioners alike. It draws on extensive empirical data from key national systems in the Anglophone world but goes beyond the simply descriptive to analyse and explain.

The book should be of considerable interest to all those who are interested in issues relating to development of education in India, policy planners, research scholars and students of education.

This volume delivers a cutting-edge analysis on vernacular globalization, or how local forces mediate global trends. It delves into the vital facets of the quest for global competitiveness, including: Global university rankings World-class universities University mergers Quality assurance Cross-border higher education International education hubs. The authors situate their topics within current international scholarship and demonstrate the myriad avenues through which local actors in higher education may respond to global competition. They pose critical questions about the impact of global competition in an increasingly hierarchical higher education environment, interrogating the potential for social injustice that arises. By providing an alternative perspective to the descriptive, normative approach that dominates the scholarship on global competition in higher education, the chapters in this volume open a fresh and invaluable dialogue in this arena. This is the 168th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, it provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.
