The Dynamics of College Students' Opinions about the Modernization of Higher Education
Ivakhnenko, Galina Aleksandrovna
Russian Education and Society, v50 n7 p44-52 Jul 2008
In 2001-2002 and 2006-2007, the author conducted two comparative surveys among the students of a number of higher educational institutions in Moscow. The main purpose of the surveys was to study processes of the modernization of higher education and also to determine what attitudes students hold toward these processes. Of the many aspects of modernization the author focused on the following: (1) college and university education on a tuition basis and nontuition basis; (2) stipends and benefits for students; (3) students' attitudes toward the unified state examination; and (4) how well informed college students are about the Bologna Convention on Higher Education. This article presents the analysis of the author on the findings of her surveys. (Contains 1 note.)
