dc.description.abstractThis publication, Access Without Equity? Finding a Better Balance in Higher Education in Asia, makes a strong case, through a comprehensive analysis, for shifting the development agenda from access to widening participation and for strengthening inclusiveness in higher education in our region. In this context, it also provides a timely update on the latest developments in the use and potential of information and communications technologies in the delivery of higher education. The publication presents the following policy recommendations for stakeholders of higher education: Find a more effective balance between continued expansion of access and renewed attention to improving instructional quality; Extend access in ways that promote better equity; Support the development, use, and evaluation of information and communications technology in the delivery of university instruction; and Support government and university efforts to develop funding models that support wider access to high-quality higher education. In addition, it suggests concrete operational strategies for development partners, such as the Asian Development Bank, concerning their role in supporting developing countries in this field in the region.
