Introductory seminar: 'The challenges for higher education'
A general introduction to the seminar series 'Higher Education: Global challenges and multi-disciplinary perspectives.' The lecture offers an overview of the nature of higher education, its historical roots and developments.
Particular attention is given to (a) higher education as a prime example of a long-standing institution, apparently remarkably stable, but nevertheless undergoing significant changes; (b) higher education institutions as "special" organisations; (c) the public and private functions of higher education, including the various stakeholders in higher education; (d) the enduring challenges; (d) a perspective on higher education in and of the future.
Lecturer: Prof. Jeroen Huisman (Department of Sociology, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences, Ghent University)
