Diversification of Tertiary Education.
A working party of representatives from the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Norway, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, visited five capitals to hear accounts of noteworthy innovations or experiments at the tertiary (post secondary) level of education. Diversification as opposed to expansion is currently being tried in many countries because of the traditional university's lack of pedagogical leadership. The working party wished to investigate this trend, particularly on the following points: new types of institutions, problems of mobility between one institution and another, guidance for students, access to tertiary education, training and recruitment of university teachers, planning concepts at the university and national levels, and curricular reform and development. In the first part of their report the aims, resources, and implication of diversification are explored. This theoretical discussion is illustrated with case studies in the second part, which also includes the members' reactions to the fundamental issues involved. Recommendations from the working party include the monitoring of ongoing experiments and continued research into tertiary educational experiments for the benefit of all the member nations. (JH)
