The Road to Academic Excellence: The Making of World-Class Research Universities

The Road to Academic Excellence: The Making of World-Class Research Universities | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

How do you build a world-class research university from scratch? In today's ever-faster, global economy, many countries are reflecting on the merits of building elite global universities to make their mark in world research. Recognizing that such universities are emerging as the central institutions of the 21st Century's knowledge economies, a new book 'The Road to Academic Excellence: The Making of World-Class Research Universities' examines the recent experience of 11 universities in 9 countries on 4 continents that have grappled with the challenges of building successful research institutions under difficult circumstances, and synthesizes the lessons learned. This book will be essential reading for governments, tertiary education leaders, employers, and citizens, considering reforms and innovations to improve their country's position in the global scene. The case studies presented suggest that a faster and more effective approach to achieve world-class university status is to establish a new institution. New universities can grow into high-quality research institutions within two or three decades when talent, resources, and governance are adequately aligned from the beginning.Outstanding research universities do not operate in a vacuum; they evolve from a tertiary education ecosystem which affects the performance of individual institutions.

Great tool for teachers.  We must make students aware of their thinking processes so they can use them strategically and develop them fully
