|Title:||Overview of Higher Education in Asia-Pacific||Contributor(s):||Meek, Vincent Lynn (author); Goedegebuure, Leo (author); Quiddington, Peter (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11102||Abstract:||Data Caveats: • Common problems obtaining coherent data for across the entire Asia Pacific region. • Not all national statistical collections are yet complete, though major improvements in recent years. Also, interpretation can be difficult, and must be done with some caution, because of different national data collection methods. • Sufficient data to develop some discernible patterns and trends in key areas with policy relevance. • The vast extremes in the region make comparisons difficult and this can be partly overcome by aggregating data into High, Medium and Lower Income Economic (HIE, MIE and LIE) groups, in line with World Bank classifications.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Asia-Pacific Sub-regional Preparatory Conference for the 2009 World Conference on Higher Education - "Facing Global and Local Challenges: the New Dynamics for Higher Education", Macao, China, 24th - 26th September, 2008||Conference Details:||Asia-Pacific Sub-regional Preparatory Conference for the 2009 World Conference on Higher Education - "Facing Global and Local Challenges: the New Dynamics for Higher Education", Macao, China, 24th - 26th September, 2008||Source of Publication:||Asia-Pacific Sub-regional Preparatory Conference for the 2009 World Conference on Higher Education Papers and Presentations (Opening Ceremony)||Publisher:||UNESCO: United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization||Place of Publication:||online||Field of Research (FOR):||160506 Education Policy||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.unescobkk.org/education/apeid/resources/past-events/higherdistance-ed-workshops/macao08/papers-presentations/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 98
