Abstract

Austria, Germany, and Switzerland are increasingly relying on hybridization at the nexus of vocational training and higher education to increase permeability and reform their highly praised systems of collective skill formation. This historical and organizational institutionalist study compares these countries to trace the evolution of their skill regimes from the 1960s to today‘s era of Europeanization, focusing especially on the impact of the Bologna and Copenhagen processes.&#xD;

Abstract

As an interdisciplinary field of study, higher education research is still underdeveloped in terms of theoretical matureness and rigour. This book offers perspectives on how a range of methodological choices, theoretical approaches and conceptualisations from other disciplines can be successfully applied and utilised in the context of higher education. As a reader compiled of independent chapters, the book is particularly aimed at PhD students in the field of higher education administration. The book consists of three parts: I Methodological Approaches – examples for early career researchers; II Conceptual Approaches Utilised to Understanding University Transformation; and, III Scholarly Traditions Applied to Understand Universities and Academic Work. The first part highlights the importance of methods in research, and provides examples of academic dissertations with strong methodological groundings. In the second part, the authors provide theoretical and conceptual aids to analyse the transformation of higher education. The third part focuses on how traditional and well-established theoretical approaches can be applied to higher education settings in terms of, for example, research questions.&#xD;

Abstract

This book links to another book also published by IUC aiming to constitute two sides of the same coin. Having a different scope, both result from the same research project centered on the theme of integrity and academic fraud and they balance each other. In this book we gathered some of the texts that supported the interventions made by their authors in the final conference of the research project, which took place at the Faculty of Economics, University of Coimbra on 8 and 9 May 2014. These are authors whose reflections were very important for the design and development of the project. Some of them took the external consultants function and its contribution extends far beyond the reflections they wrote here. This is a highly theoretical work, unlike the other book (which organizes the empirical results achieved under the project, related to academic fraud committed by students in Portugal). Integrity and academic fraud and its variants and dimensions; its causes and consequences; obstacles and solutions inherent to his combat; the actors involved and the contexts of their occurrence are, among others, targets of conceptualization, scrutiny and discussion. Discussion is also expressed by the publication, in a conversational tone, of the debates occurred among the participants over the two days of the symposium.

Abstract

Este libro cierra el tracto que se inició, en octubre de 2002 con la investidura como doctor honoris causa del profesor Mariano Peset. El hecho de que la historia de las universidades haya sido una línea ininterrumpida a lo largo de su investigación y el que hayamos tratado de materializar sus enseñanzas de tantos años en el Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad explican que le hayamos dedicado este homenaje científico en un seminario que tuvo lugar en el campus de Colmenarejo de la Universidad Carlos III durante los días 22 y 23 de septiembre de 2003. Quisimos que el encuentro científico tuviera carácter monográfico, para centrar el interés de nuestro encuentro y evitar la dispersión de los discursos. Y pensamos que tratar de la enseñanza del derecho en el siglo XX era un buen tema por varias razones, entre las que subrayo dos: porque la centuria pasada ya puede ser tratada históricamente y, sobre todo, para continuar la labor de Mariano Peset que, en su día, hizo lo propio para el siglo XIX, con incursiones también en el que nos ocupa en este libro.

Abstract

The modern university can trace its roots to Kant's call for enlightened self-determination, with education aiming to produce an informed and responsible body of citizens. As the university evolved, specialized areas of investigation emerged, enabling ever more precise research and increasingly nuanced arguments. In recent decades, however, challenges to the hegemony of disciplines have arisen, partly in response to a perceived need for the university to focus greater energy on its public vocation—teaching and the dissemination of knowledge.Valences of Interdisciplinarity presents essays by an international array of scholars committed to enhancing our understanding of the theoretical underpinnings and the practical realities of interdisciplinary teaching and research. What is, and what should be, motivating our reflections on (and practice of) approaches that transcend the conventional boundaries of discipline? And in adopting such transdisciplinary approaches, how do we safeguard critical methods and academic rigour? Reflecting on the obstacles they have encountered both as thinkers and as educators, the authors map out innovative new directions for the interdisciplinary project. Together, the essays promise to set the standards of the debate about interdisciplinarity for years to come.

Abstract

The book uses a comparative study of Germany and Britain to reveal how national institutions shape the labour market careers of higher education graduates. It identifies four institutional spheres that are important: the structure of higher education systems, the content of study, the structure of graduate labour markets, and labour market flexibility. Due to country differences, the transition from higher education to work in Germany follows a smooth path, while in Britain it is more comparable to a long and winding road.&#xD;

Abstract

Life chances today are increasingly determined by school, vocational, university and further education. The author examines the permeability between vocational and higher education - an important prerequisite for enabling participation in education and society - in comparison between Germany and France. The focus is on stability and change at the institutional level and the influence of European educational processes since the end of the 1990s as well as their re-/productive significance in relation to social educational inequalities. Awarded the Young Investigators' Prize for Sociology of Education by the Education Section of the German Society for Sociology.

Abstract

This book is a detailed study of higher education institutions affiliated to particular religions. It considers the debates surrounding academic freedom, institutional governance, educational policy, mission and identity together with institutions’ relations with the state and their wider communities. A wide range of institutions are examined, including: Christian, Islamic and Jewish universities in the US, Europe and the Middle East. Essentially, this volume questions whether such institutions can be both religious and a ‘university’ and also considers the appropriate role of religious faith within colleges and universities.
