Reforms in Yugoslavia. Case Studies on Innovation in Higher Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This volume is one of a series of case studies on innovation in higher education published by the OECD. Part I, The General Context of Reform, briefly reviews the Yugoslav education system, and focuses on higher education to discuss the need for reform arising out of Yugoslavia's social and economic development plans, the excessive time required to complete studies, and the development of the higher education system. This is followed by a definition of the aims of the reforms and a brief outline of the history of the reform process. Part II, The Specific Problems of Innovation, discusses the past, present, and future positions of the following problems: coping with increased numbers, equality of opportunity, content and structure of studies, specialization of the institutions, organizational structures, institutional autonomy, recruitment and status of teachers, teaching and research, organization and methods of teaching, teacher-student relations, role and status of students, higher education and the outside world, evaluation and planning, and cost and financing. The Conclusions summarize the major findings and assess the future of higher education in Yugoslavia. (AF)
