Technology and Workplace Skills for the Twenty-First Century: Asia Pacific Universities in the Globalized Economy
edited by Deane E. Neubauer and Kamila Ghazali

International & Development Education

Technology and Workplace Skills for the Twenty-First Century examines many of the rapid changes taking place at the intersection of workplace demands and higher education throughout the Asia Pacific region. The globalized, interdependent twenty-first century workforce is built around computing, communication, and automation. These characteristics have changed the ways in which higher education is connected to the workforce and raised the stakes for educating students for the changing workforce. In this book, scholars and education leaders throughout Asia Pacific and the US investigate how the changing needs of the workforce have shaped higher education's curriculum, methods, and orientation, and show how different Asia Pacific countries have responded differently to these challenges.

Changing Faces Women's Leadership Seminar: A Model for Increasing Asia-Pacific Women's Entrepreneurial Participation, in Women and Leadership Around the World. This volume explores areas of women's leadership in four regions around the world: The Middle East, Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. The chapters cover a wide range of important topics relevant to women and leadership within specific contexts around the world. The goal is to provide readers with explorations of women's experiences as leaders, including recent research studies, analysis and interpretation of statistics unpacking the status of women in various sectors and countries, stories of influential women leaders with national or local spheres of influence, and including recommendations for positive change to increase women's access to positions of authority. The volume contributors use various theories and conceptualizations to problematize, historicize, and analyze women's limited access to power, and their agency as leaders from the grassroots to the national scene, from education to non-profits and business organizations.
