The UHA Programme for the Follow-Up of the Reform of Higher Education. Current Status. R&D for Higher Education, 1979:7.
National Swedish Board of Universities and Colleges, Stockholm. Research and Development Unit.
The current status of the program for the reform of higher education in Sweden (enacted in 1977) is reported. Principles of the program, which is designed to monitor program implementation and collect information concerning the reform, are outlined. Among the principles identified are that the evaluation was designed to pinpoint problem areas and initiate projects within those areas in a series of steps that allow for change along the way. Other principles follow from the pattern and involve the combining of information from the various areas and the development of the ability for the colleges and universities to make their own evaluations. Five areas are identified as needing reform: the organization of higher education, funding systems and the planning of programs, activity evaluation in higher education, forms and content of higher education, and social effects of the reform of higher education. Each of the ten projects listed is described briefly--functional study of the organization of higher education, funding systems and the planning of programs, activity evaluation in higher education, problem and project oriented education, the study organization project, the adjustment of the higher education system to recurrent education, the Uppsala recurrent education project, effects of access rules, equality and higher education and recruitment for research training and research careers. Information on seven bulletins on the reform follow-up program which are available from the Swedish Board is listed, as well as titles available in Swedish only. (PHR)
