College Based Higher Education and its Identities : History, Pedagogy and Purpose within the Sector
(1st ed. 2020)
This book explores the history, purpose and understandings of College Based Higher Education.
Drawing together the perspectives of researchers and practitioners in the field, the book traces its history and aims, and identifies issues paramount to the survival of the sector, uniting a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Emphasising the need for a distinct identity, unique teaching and a research culture, this book acts as a clarion call for the sector to recognise its own importance and value, and to act as a hope in a higher education environment which is increasingly marketised, competitive and unsustainable.
This book will appeal to scholars of College Based Higher Education and higher education in general, as well as policy makers and practitioners.
