Abstract

This volume examines the sustainability of higher education massification throughout the Asia Pacific region. The massification of higher education has swept across the region over the past three decades in complex and astounding ways in some cases. The book inquires after the many faces that higher education massification is taking in varied country settings and seeks to identify the more important implications that follow. It discusses massification and its sustainability within the region's complex contexts and addresses the issues of implications, challenges, and limitations. Paying particular attention to implications on resources, employment and social mobility, institutional identity, programs, funding and teacher education, the book explores the capacity of countries to stay on the course they have chosen and the implications this may have for the continued identification of resources to do so, the choice to focus more particularly and importantly on the considerable range of innovations and variations and the ability to recognize and develop them in meaningful ways.
