Spaulding, Seth; And Others
This report presents the papers and meeting documents from a forum of selected, multinational higher education experts who were brought together to examine higher educational issues, the ways of researching them, and the ways of encouraging more research on higher education (with emphasis on developing countries). An overview of the global issues discussed during the Forum and in the working papers appears in chapter 1 of the report. Chapters II, III, and IV present results from three working group sessions that examined the research needed in the following areas: policy; administration, management, and governance systems; curriculum; teaching methods; educational materials and technologies; and student and faculty development and evaluation. In addition, the report presents final-session results wherein all three groups considered implementation strategies for encouraging and supporting the kinds of higher education research they were recommending. Finally, chapter V presents the recommendations for future action by intergovernmental agencies, governments, funding agencies, universities, and their faculty members arising from this session. Annexes include a list of the forum participants; the agenda and working plan for the meeting; and a summarization of the position papers, along with abstracts of the three working papers. Contains an index. (GLR)
