Rankings and Accountability in Higher Education: Uses and Misuses

Rankings and Accountability in Higher Education: Uses and Misuses | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

International university rankings affect public policy and the choices of students and their families. Rightly or wrongly, they are perceived as a measure of quality and so create intense competition between universities all over the world. But are they doing more harm than good?  

A new UNESCO publication, Rankings and Accountability in Higher Education: Uses and Misuses, debates the pros and cons of classifying universities. It brings together the people behind university rankings and their critics to debate the uses and misuses of existing rankings. Featuring voices from five continents, the publication aims to help the ultimate readers of rankings and league tables – be they students, parents, governments or institutional leaders – become better, and more discerning users of these tools. It provides a comprehensive overview of current thinking on the subject, and sets out alternative approaches and complementary tools for a new era of transparent and informed use of higher education ranking tables.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

"....Of the world’s 17,000+ universities, only 1% are the focus of the “world university rankings” published by three of the most prominent “ranking houses”. Although varied in many respects, the top 200 ranked schools tend to be older (200+ years) establishments, focusing mostly on scientific research, with around 25,000 students and 2,500 faculty; and annual budgets exceeding 2 billion USD.

 

Rankings should evolve to give information that is more pertinent to the needs of universities, students and policy-makers, matches local contexts and contributes to the growth of world-class higher education systems, rather than a limited number of world-class institutions".....

That is an excellent publication authored by Marope, Wells and Hazelkorn who are key researchers on the topic of rankings. Highly suggested as essential reading.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, July 1, 11:01 AM

You see all those posts floating around Facebook and Twitter – getting all those likes and shares and retweets. You watch all those pins getting repinned. You scratch your head and wonder “what are they doing that I am not??” You analyze competitors that are doing well on social media can’t quite put your finger on what they are doing that is working so darn well.

It’s not science fiction: research groups all over the world have been working to develop artificial photosynthesis, which could greatly reduce our dependence on crude oil and make use of the growing amount of manmade carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to climate change. The concept received a nod from US President Barack Obama when he mentioned “turning sunlight into liquid fuel” in his State of the Union speech in January.

Exponential Organizations Are The Future Of Global Business And Innovation

Exponential Organizations Are The Future Of Global Business And Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

 "Here’s a strange thought: Not very long ago, vertical integration was the cutting edge of global business. Indeed, well into the last century, the companies considered to be at the forefront of innovation were those resting atop the largest and most sprawling networks of operation.

Today’s business leaders stake their success on the opposite model of development. Increasingly, “agility” is the determining factor of market competitiveness, “leanness” its new underlying impetus. The fear of being outmaneuvered in the digital age has sent even cumbersome corporate giants like General Electric scrambling to adopt methodologies from the startup community." By Nabyl Charania
