The notion that education prepares you for the rest of your life is flawed. Rather, education helps you develop the lifelong learning skills that will help you to be responsive to change as it happens.

It might be argued that, public confidence in higher education has been declining steadily as the gap between the 'relevance' seen (by students, communities, and commerce) between what students are being prepared for and the lives they are going to live.

I wanted to ask the question (perhaps a little controversial)

Are tertiary institutions innovative (something several claim to be) or are they simply doing the same things they have been doing for years, just using different tools?
Are we preparing students to be ethical, able participants in communities - online and face-to-face?
