Oxford and the Decline of the Collegiate Tradition. Woburn Education Series.
Tapper, Ted; Palfreyman, David
This book examines how the idea of collegiality in British higher education is being restructured in response to contemporary pressures of marketization, managerialism, and massification. The focus is on Oxford University, but implications are drawn for the future of higher education in Britain in general. The chapters are: (1) "Collegiality Debated"; (2) "Continuity and Change in the Collegiate Tradition"; (3) "Commensality: Time and Space, Port and Sport, Code and Dress"; (4) "The Elusive Search for the Best and the Brightest: Many Are Called, Few Are Chosen"; (5) "The Tutorial System: The Jewel in the Crown"; (6) "Governance: A Community of Self-Governing Scholars"; (7) "Finance: The Well-Endowed Corporation"; and (8) "Crisis? What Crisis?" A postscript, "The Death of the Collegiate Tradition?" presents some scenarios for the future. (Contains 234 references.) (SLD)
