critical thinking for global challenges
"There is an increasing pressure for leading universities to perform well in competitive global and national ranking systems. In recognising the increasingly challenging nature of the role of leadership within higher education, this book studies the complexity involved in the development and upkeep of good higher education provision. Using international case studies it explores the extent to which critical thinking on global challenges is employed by higher education leaders and the potential for an increase in the role of critical thinking and its creative potential to transform institutions and communities"--, Provided by publisher
