On Becoming a Productive University: Strategies for Reducing Costs and Increasing Quality in Higher Education.
When used in the context of higher education, "productivity" sounds like a dirty word. After all, as the argument goes, this isn't a widget-making business. But productivity is about increasing educational outcomes relative to costs, and that's no simple challenge for cash-strapped institutions. The contributors to this book--who come from a variety of disciplines and institutions--offer specific strategies for increasing productivity in all areas, from organization, assessment, and faculty development to technology, curricular reform, and classroom instruction. The solutions presented here can be implemented at any college or university, and can go a long way to improving quality in higher education.
