Education development has a central role to play in these areas, and should be a core element in the strategic positioning of all higher education institutions.
This book is a packed with research and proven case study material on what education development can offer managers in higher education. It draws from worldwide experiences of leading innovative educational developers, and illustrates the numerous ways in which education development strategies, structures and processes can make a difference to an institution's corporate strategy.
