Book Description Report this book

The world of higher education is undergoing profound and rapid changes. These changes are forcing our educational systems to respond to ensure that the quality of life in these communities is maintained. This book explains why quality is an imperative in higher education, how the quality phenomena have evolved and expanded, and who the pioneers were and what they invented. It includes a framework for educators to consider in their own teaching and curricula planning. It documents tools and “How to …” for design and management of improved quality for higher education. It also shares knowledge of the roadblocks that can be expected and the needs that remain for the Quality Sciences.
