Enhance – Inclusion and Diversity Management (IDM)

The Yerevan communiqué (2015) as well as subsequent national strategies on the social dimension encourage European Higher Educations Institutions (HEIs) to provide inclusive systems for previously under-represented student groups. The aim is to widen access to university and to improve the outcomes for a more diverse range of applicants (e.g. disabled students, students with different national/ethnic/cultural/ linguistic backgrounds, and students with differing levels of maturity or prior work experience).

Collaboration, Communities and Competition. International Perspectives from the Academy

At the 2017 EAIR Forum in Porto a new book was launched “Collaboration, Communities and Competition. International Perspectives from the Academy”. The authors of this book are Samuel Dent, Laura Lane and Tony Strike (Eds.).

This book asks whether there is an alternative approach to this now transnational competitive logic. Can collaboration and partnership (re-)emerge as an antidote to the consumerist and competitive approaches taken by governments toward regulating their higher education systems? The question of competition, collaboration and community is addressed here at three levels of analysis. The macro-level or the international system level, observes competition and collaboration between countries and between institutions. The meso-level, includes competition and collaboration between academics and students, and at inter-and intra-disciplinary levels across organizational boundaries. Finally, competition and collaboration at the micro-level considers the interface between individual academics, and between academics and students as learners.
