Volume I begins with
institutional forms and structures and focuses on preservation and
transmission of the knowledge and wisdom of the past, then calls for a global
networking approach to the rethinking of all education.
Volume II is on the future
of research. Volume III focuses on the individual: learning and teaching. Intended
primarily for the developing world, these volumes should be
seen as an 'outline' to which web page addresses will be added.
Author's Note: The author alone is at this stage
responsible for this experiment, for the incompleteness, errors and other
faults in what is the
'green fruit' of a long exploration of a vast literature and of attending
conferences and studying reports. Pulling together and linking ideas from many
sources continues to be an exhausting task and at times a nearly impossible one.
This compilation should be seen as a precursor of a more adequate online
book on higher global education to come: which will also require the
collaboration of many researchers and experimenters. I am grateful for those in
many countries (many of them cited in the bibliographies) who have helped me
gather this information because they feel the time has come for this kind of future
survey and introduction. Between January
2002 and August 2006 this online book had been used more than 400,000
times and in over 30 countries.
An interview article about the hopes and intentions of this project is
appended at the end of the acknowledgements
section. (And in Chinese) Also see: <http://cie.fc.ul.pt/seminarioscie/universidade/pross.htm>.
This online book is intended to be continually updated--with more
recent web links to illustrations and bibliography items--and reports on
new developments, such as large-scale transdisciplinary research on basic human
problems, perhaps as a cooperative project involving many contributors
who are interested in enlarging a quest for larger research visions for
higher education. Sequel to THE EMERGING
WORLDWIDE ELECTRONIC UNIVERSITY (Praeger 1993)
