Book Description

The true success of a nation can be measured by its ability to create, disseminate, and utilize knowledge through education.

Systemic Knowledge-Based Assessment of Higher Education Programs offers theoretical and pedagogical research concerning the management of educational systems on both the national and international scale. Exploring the most effective ways to utilize intellectual capital, this publication implores educators to ensure that their students hone the skills necessary to interact in the globalized economy, using all of the information available to them. This book is a versatile asset for educators, administrators, government agencies, and students of education.
