<EM>Beyond McDonaldization</EM> provides new concepts of higher education for the twenty-first century in a unique manner, challenging much that is written in mainstream texts. This book undertakes a reassessment of the growth of McDonaldization in higher education by exploring how the application of Ritzer’s four features efficiency, predictability, calculability and control has become commonplace.
This wide-ranging text discusses arguments surrounding the industrialisation of higher education, with case studies and contributions from a wide range of international authors. Written in an accessible style, Beyond McDonaldization examines questions such as:
<LI>Can we regain academic freedom whilst challenging the McDonaldization of thought and ideas?</LI>
<LI>Is a McDonaldization of every aspect of academic life inevitable?</LI>
<LI>Will the new focus on student experience damage young people?</LI>
Why is a McDonaldized education living on borrowed time?
<LI>Is it possible to recreate the university of the past or must we start anew?</LI>
<LI>Does this industrialisation meet the educational needs of developing economies?</LI>
This book brings international discussions on the changing world of higher education and the theory of McDonaldization together, seeking to provide a positive future vision of higher education. Analysing and situating the discussion of higher education within a wider social, political and cultural context, this ground-breaking text will have a popular appeal with students, academics and educationalists.
