Emerald Group Publishing, Jun 28, 2011 - Education - 358 pages
This book is premised on the need for institutional transformation in higher education (HE), changing institutional structures, processes and governance, and developing an inclusive culture and altering processes of knowledge creation (research) and knowledge transfer (learning and teaching). Key features include: developing the concept of institutional transformation and student engagement to widen participation in HE and improve student retention and success; providing an analysis of how well institutions in England are doing in terms of taking a whole institution approach to widening participation, student diversity and success; exploring the meaning of institutional transformation in relation to outreach, admissions, induction and transition, learning and teaching, personal tutoring and support, research and progression beyond HE; identifying approaches to managing institutional transformation; involving students in the process of transformation; and, illustrating and developing these themes through a serious of mini international case studies. This book helps readers engage with a number of core HE issues that have dominated UK and International policy over recent years.
