Master Learning: A Way to Manage Tertiary Education in Small Island Jurisdictions
Hovgaard, Gestur
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, v72 n5 p637-649 Nov 2016
As a consequence of globalisation, there is now a general trend among hesitant small island jurisdictions to focus on educational planning in the tertiary sector. The question therefore is how smart solutions adapted to the specific contexts can be developed. This article argues for the need to innovate the societal role of the smaller state university with a focus upon "planning" and "learning." The idea of "master learning" is presented as an important organising and learning framework for developing a flexible and rational alternative social science master in smaller educational environments.
