Casos de estudio innovadores en la educación formal en Palestina: resumen, retos y perspectivas de futuro
Palestinian universities and schools are focused on advancing teaching, learning, and research on a global level whilst meeting the local community’s needs by participating in sustainable economic, technical, and human development. Universities and schools aim for international education practices and to cultivate a multicultural, pluralistic outlook amongst staff and students designed to foster cross-cultural dialogue and academic exchange, which includes localising education practices into a (new) shape that suits the current situation in Palestine. This collection of papers brings together education research and practice focused on approaches to ensure the continuous improvement and quality of higher education provision across the country, with a particular focus on academic capability building, academic development, and knowledge exchange with international higher education partners. Innovative ideas, best practices, and comparative case studies are presented, discussed, and compared with international ones to extract lessons on how sustainable development goals were nearly achieved.
