Summary
This book provides an international investigation of tertiary education policy across its many facets -- governance, funding, quality assurance, equity, research and innovation, academic career, links to the labor market and internationalization. It presents an analysis of the trends and developments in tertiary education; a synthesis of research-based evidence on the impact of tertiary-education policies; innovative and successful policies and practices that countries have implemented; and tertiary-education policy options. The report draws on the results of a major OECD review of tertiary education policy -- the OECD Thematic Review of Tertiary Education -- conducted over the 2004-08 period in collaboration with 24 countries around the world.--Publisher's description.
