Hochschulen stehen nach der Bachelor- und Master-Einführung vor weiteren umfassenden Strukturreformen. Es geht um eine größere Durchlässigkeit zwischen beruflicher Bildung und Hochschulbildung in einem System des Lebenslangen Lernens. Diese Neuausrichtung erfordert einen Ausbau bestehender Beratungssysteme, die Anrechnung außerhochschulisch erworbener Kompetenzen auf das Studium, den Aufbau spezieller Programme für Berufstätige und die konsequente Umsetzung modularer Strukturen sowie die Einbindung von Angeboten aus der Erwachsenen- und Weiterbildung in die Hochschulbildung. Der Band greift diese Themen auf und diskutiert Reformmaßnahmen, die im Zuge des Förderprogramms „Offene Hochschule Niedersachsen“ erprobt wurden.

Language Policy in Higher Education

The Case of Medium-Sized Languages

In today's increasingly interconnected, knowledge-based world, language policy in higher education is rapidly becoming a crucial area for all societies aiming to play a part in the global economy. The challenge is double faceted: how can universities retain their crucial role of creating the intellectual elites who are indispensable for the running of national affairs and, at the same time, prepare their best-educated citizens for competition in a global market? To what extent is English really pushing other languages out of the academic environment? Drawing on the experience of several medium-sized language communities, this volume provides the reader with some important insights into how language policies can be successfully implemented. The different sociolinguistic contexts under scrutiny offer an invaluable comparative standpoint to understand what position can – or could – be occupied by each language at the level of higher education.

Higher Education and the Market

The introduction of market forces into higher education is the most crucial issue facing universities and colleges today. As the role of universities in the knowledge society becomes ever more apparent, and as public funding reaches its limit, marketisation has become an issue of critical importance. Discussions about the ever-increasing cost of tuition, affordability, access, university rankings, information, and the commercialization of academic research take place not just in North America, Western Europe and Australasia, but also in Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America. Higher Education and the Market provides a comprehensive account of this phenomenon, and looks at its likely impact on key dimensions of university activity: system structure funding and resources the curriculum participation and achievement research and scholarship interactions with third parties. Contributors propose how market forces, government intervention and academic self-regulation can be combined to harness the benefits of increased competition and efficiency without losing the public good. It is of particular interest to government and institutional leaders, policy makers, researchers and students studying higher education.
