CHANGE MANAGEMENT IN TEACHING ORGANISATIONS
Coordinator: Marina Tomàs i Folch
CCUC has been researching since 1999 into change and innovation in universities as seen from the angle of organisational culture. To this end it has received funding from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science (MCyT) within the 2000-2003 programme: “A study of culture change in Catalan universities” and from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN) 2005-2008 programme: “A study of innovation processes in Catalan universities”.
Since 2000 we have been organising annual winter seminars on “Change within the University”. The last three of these were international and all were supported by public funding through the MICINN’s “Complementary Actions” or AGAUR’s ARCS programme.
Our research has resulted in the publication of two books and ten articles, some of which appeared in prestigious international journals like “Higher Education in Europe”.
