Due to the development of the international Education for All and Education for Sustainable Development movements, for which UNESCO is the lead agency, there has been an increasing emphasis on the power of education and schooling to help build more just and equitable societies. Thus giving everyone the opportunity to develop their talents to the full, regardless of characteristics such as gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, religious persuasion, or regional location. As enshrined in the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights over five decades ago, everyone has the right to receive a high quality and relevant education. In order to try to achieve this ideal, many countries are substantially re-engineering their education systems with an increasing emphasis on promoting equity and fairness, and on ensuring that everyone has access to a high quality and relevant education. They are also moving away from the traditional outlook of almost exclusively stressing formal education in schools as the most valuable way in which people learn, to accepting that important and valuable learning does not just occur in formal, dedicated education institutions, but also through informal and non-formal means. Thus learning is both lifelong and life-wide. This book brings together the experience and research of 40 recognised and experienced opinion leaders in education around the world. The book investigates the most effective ways of ensuring the UNESCO aim of effective education for all people in the belief that not only should education be a right for all, but also that education and schooling has the potential to transform individual lives and to contribute to the development of more just, humane and equitable societies.

This book investigates the unique and dynamic approaches to key issues of changing images of child and childhood, by different countries in the Asia-Pacific. Key concepts considered are re-conceptualizing early childhood education and care, re-eaxming early learning standards and redefining professionalism. The Asia Pacific region includes countries belonging to both the Majority and Minority worlds and which vary widely in terms of their cultural geography, social-cultural beliefs, and levels of development, demographic profiles, political systems and government commitments to early childhood services. An international team of experienced researchers from different countries guarantees diverse perspectives. By examining different countries’ policy choices and evidence-based practices, the authors show how best to provide for young children based on their countries’ strategies.

With a total of 14 chapters prepared by 18 scholars from nine educational systems – Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and United States – in the Asia-Pacific region, the book highlights the trends and challenges in the reform of teacher education in the region generally and in eight educational systems in particular. Most chapters directly or indirectly address the latest issues of teacher education and development at operational, site, and macro levels from a national or regional perspective. This volume is of interest to teachers, teacher educators, researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders in all developed and developing countries.

Across the globe, American-style and liberal arts universities are being established. From the first, the American University of Beirut, established in 1866, to the liberal arts institutions being established in Saudi Arabia, Ghana, and elsewhere in the twenty-first century, there is a clear sense of the global desire for the American approach to higher education as a way of counteracting traditional, more narrowly defined university educations. However, these universities operate in a distinctive dynamic that must learn to bridge one culture with another, and leadership of such institutions must by its nature focus on such complexities and tensions. Throughout the chapters of this book, this unique element of these universities will be better understood through the stories and experiences as presented by their presidents, provosts, and other academic leaders.

Infolge einer Vielzahl von Reformen und Veränderungen der gesellschaftlichen und bildungspolitischen Rahmenbedingungen an deutschen Hochschulen hat sich im Laufe des letzten Jahrzehnts deren Selbstverständnis stark gewandelt. Die Konstruktion von Hochschule als kurzer und klar definierter Lebensabschnitt zwischen Schule und Berufsleben wird zunehmend infrage gestellt. So sprechen sowohl die empirische Realität als auch der demographische Trend für die Entwicklung der Hochschulen hin zu einem Bildungsangebot, das ein Leben lang in Anspruch genommen werden kann. Im Rahmen des Verbundprojektes „STU+BE – Studium für Berufstätige: Erfolgsfaktoren für Lifelong Learning an Hochschulen“ wurde die Situation an der Universität Duisburg-Essen, der Technischen Universität Dortmund und der Universität Oldenburg exemplarisch und im Hinblick auf Innovationspotenziale und -ansätze in Richtung lebenslanges Lernen untersucht. Eine zusätzliche Vergleichsstudie befasst sich mit der Situation an ausländischen Hochschulen und zeigt Unterschiede zum deutschen System, z.B. im Bereich der organisatorischen Anlage. Der Band zeigt die aktuelle Diskussion über lebenslanges Lernen an Hochschulen auf und diskutiert Lösungen für einen Wandel des Bildungsauftrags von Hochschulen.
