Resource description

Denmark is among the world’s most competitive nations. At the same time it has a strong traditionof citizenship‐oriented tertiary education. Nevertheless, we are currently witnessing the erosion ofthis tradition, arguably as a result of neoliberal ideologies ushered in by globalization andinternationalization processes. These processes have stirred domestic fears, evident in government reports, about the need to improve Danish higher education to ‘meet the challengesof globalisation’. Concrete instances of possible erosion include recent directives to examine andgrade group work on an individual basis, the abolition of the ‘13’ grade for individual or groupperformance, and the introduction of measurable skills via “learning objectives,” for all tertiaryeducation courses.
