Summary

There are a number of global challenges and opportunities faced by HE managers and key decision-makers; factors such as quality assurance, the changing profiles of academic and student populations, international competition, and the opportunities afforded by flexible learning. In order to take full advantage of the changing climate of higher education, institutions need to be positioned and organized effectively. In this book, an international collection of leading contributors consider the above factors and provide accounts of how educational development can prove central to university policy and strategic planning, covering areas such as teaching development, teaching quality, integrating online learning, complying with inclusion policy, and professionalism.
