Reseña del libro: Reinventing Higher Education: The promise of innovation

Reinventing Higher Education: The promise of innovation is a highly readable and important collection of essays edited by Ben Wildavsky, Andrew P Kelly and Kevin Carey. The book reads as a call to arms to the US higher education system to reform itself to remain what they unashamedly describe as the "best higher education system in the world".

The book is a series of interconnected chapters by leading experts that outline and provide solutions to the problems facing US higher education as it grapples with issues that will be familiar to international readers - balancing the competing pressures of expanding access, improving quality and reducing costs in a context of intensifying global competition, the challenges posed by new technologies and the introduction of severe funding reductions in public higher education.
