Higher Education and Work. Higher Education Policy Series 23.
Brennan, John, Ed.; And Others
The relationship between higher education and the world of work is examined in terms of the changing structures of higher education institutions and the effect of the relationship on curricula. An international perspective is provided on the changing nature of employment and the labor market; the increasing diversification of higher education institutions, curricula and clients; and the policy frameworks and strategies through which governments may seek to steer these relationships. Eleven papers are included in this volume: (1) "Higher Education and Work: A Conceptual Framework" (John Brennan et al.); (2) "Responsiveness of Higher Education to Labour Market Demands: Curriculum Change in the Humanities" (Egbert de Weert); (3) "Employment and Work of British and German Graduates" (John Brennan et al.); (4) "Academic Cultures and their Role in the Implementation of Government Policy" (Craig McInnis); (5) "Higher Education and the Labour Market in Italy: Continuities and Changes" (Roberto Moscati and Enrico Pugliese); (6) "Managing Curriculum Development: A Case Study of Enterprise in Higher Education" (Sandra Jones); (7) "How Does a Changing Labour Market Affect the Transition from Higher Education to Work?" (Clara Aase Arnesen et al.); (8) "From Students to Intellectuals and Professionals: Subsequent Career Patterns of a Finnish Student Generation of the 1960s" (Yrjo-Paavo Hayrynen and Liisa Hayrynen); (9) "The Potentialities of Contract Education: A Study Based on Work in Progress in Thirteen European Universities" (Tony Becher); (10) "An Attempt to Forecast the Labour Market for Scientists in France" (Jean-Paul Beltramo et al); and (11) "The Institutional Aspects" (Maurice Kogan).
