Book Description

In this multi-faceted case study of one advanced institution of adult higher education, the contributors to the volume and the editors of the volume lay out significant challenges that are faced not just by non-traditional post-secondary colleges and universities, but by all organizations of higher education in today’s rapidly changing context. They contend that distinctive academic programs offered by nontraditional institutions are among those that are among the most at risk in the current environment of higher education due to the unpredictability of the times we are living in. This viewpoint is based on the belief that nontraditional institutions face unique difficulties in the current unstable environment.

The collection of 19 essays known as Principles, Practices, and Creative Tensions in Progressive Higher Education is comprised of: (PDF) highlight and investigate the key creative conflicts, as well as the rich interplays of emphases and values in higher education; this will allow us to define and address more consciously the questions that we need to address, which are as follows: Is it possible for us to make positive use of these conflicts? And is it possible for us to plot a course that will allow us to respond creatively to rapid change while yet upholding a vision along with the principles and goals that form the foundation of that vision? Are we capable of appreciating what is at risk? When viewed as a whole, this collection shed light on the creative conflicts and concerns that, with careful consideration, can serve to maintain an alternative, progressive vision of adult higher education.
