Higher Education and the Middle East, Volume II
Empowering Under-served and Vulnerable Populations
The essays collected in this volume explore a wide range of issues, including whether higher rates of participation in tertiary educational institutions by traditionally under-represented groups alone constitute progress; what the reasons and costs are of denying access to higher education to expatriate workers and their children; why “women of achievement” receive less recognition than they deserve; how creative social entrepreneurship can make higher education affordable; and what the benefits are to the implementation of teacher-centered versus learner-centered practices and the barriers to implementing them.
