Bañuelos, Nidia – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
In a 2017 speech at the Brookings Institute, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos drew a striking comparison between K-12 schools and ride share services. This idea--that education, like other consumer goods, improves through competition between providers--has been around a long time. Whenever existing schools fail to deliver what students, parents, or…

Foote, Kathleen; Henderson, Charles; Knaub, Alexis; Dancy, Melissa; Beichner, Robert – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
The authors wrote this article to share a message of hope to change agents working in higher education.

Acting once…

Sweetman, Rachel – Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
Proliferating claims have been made for Learning Outcomes (LOs) potential to re-shape higher education: as forces for transparency and harmonisation, new forms for measurement or a format that fundamentally challenges traditional teaching and learning. Evidence of their actual influence remains sparse, however. This analysis of 45 interviews with…

Over the last 30 years, governments have continuously adjusted their Higher Education policies to make universities more efficient (achieving more by spending less) and more effective (by increasing the percentage of graduates, by reducing the number of university dropouts and by focusing more on the third mission). At the core of governmental…

Donina, Davide; Hasanefendic, Sandra – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
This paper addresses the homogeneous/heterogeneous dilemma regarding formal arrangements of university central governance structures.

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) is the most successful higher education organization to emerge from the modern American evangelical movement.

Alemu, Sintayehu Kassaye – European Journal of Higher Education, 2019
Since recently, the Bologna Process has been extending into Africa through the European 'external dimension' and the African lure as a model of higher education reform.
