What Undermines Higher Education
and How This Impacts Employment, Economies and Our Democracies
What Undermines Higher Education explores "big challenges" for colleges and universities around the world. From rising inequality, decline of academic rigor, graduate unemployment and underemployment, this book is an important reading for scholars and students, policy makers and parents and encourages all to explore what they have taken for granted over the last decades. Stefan Popenici and Sharon Kerr present here risks and opportunities for higher education in a courageous approach. The impact of new technologies (with a focus on MOOCs), commercialization and internationalisation. These are presented in a conversational style, explaining complex issues through storytelling and comprehensible explanations of data and evidence. Their heretic approach to social and academic issues opens for important discussions and provides an enjoyable lecture for readers around the world.
