Study on Teachers. Quantitative Trends in Teaching Staff in Higher Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Directorate for Scientific Affairs.
This document is a report of the quantitative trends in teaching staff in higher education in 21 major countries. Part 1 of the study consists of the country studies. Wherever possible teachers were divided into 3 groups according to level: (1) senior level teachers, consisting of ordinary and extraordinary professors; (2) junior level teachers, consisting of assistant lecturers, teaching assistants and auxiliaries, and other university staff of the same level; and (3) middle-level teachers or teachers that come between the 2 groups above, such as lecturers. Further distinctions were made where possible between university and nonuniversity higher education and fields of study. Student-teacher ratios are given in the country studies whenever they are significant, and each country study concludes with a short summary of the essential features relating to that country. Part 2 is a consolidated summary of Part 1, and attempts to make an international comparison to discover features common to all countries and those peculiar to some of them. (HS)
