Tertiary Education

The book, 'Tertiary Education in Small States: Planning in the context of globalisation', edited by Michaela Martin and Mark Bray, has been awarded first place in the 2013 Best Book Award from the Higher Education Special Interest Group of the US-based Comparative & International Education Society (CIES).  The CIES, founded in 1956, is the oldest and largest body of its kind, and IIEP considers the award a great honour.

The Award Committee has indicated in a letter: “This was a highly competitive selection process. Of the two books awarded this year, your edited volume received the First Place Award”.

The book originated from an International Institute of Educational Planning (IIEP) research project on tertiary education in small states directed by Michaela Martin, the results of which were then disseminated at a Policy Forum on the theme in 2009. The book has carried out a study on the present challenges that have emerged in the tertiary education sector within the context of a now widely globalised world.

The book outlines some of the approaches, like regional and international partnerships and the use of information technology for spreading tertiary education.

The authors of the 13 chapters include researchers, administrators, and policy-makers, among whom the Governor General of Saint Lucia, Dame Pearlette Louisy.
