  Introduction to the CHEGG seminar series: 'The challenges for higher education' / Jeroen Huisman

A general introduction to the seminar series, offering an overview of the nature of higher education, its historical roots and developments.

Particular attention is given to:

  • higher education as a prime example of a long-standing institution, apparently remarkably stable, but nevertheless undergoing significant changes
  • higher education institutions as “special” organisations
  • the public and private functions of higher education, including the various stakeholders in higher education
  • the enduring challenges
  • a perspective on higher education in and of the future.

Lecturer: Prof. Jeroen Huisman (Department of Sociology, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences, Ghent University)
