This is my contribution the Think Pieces 2013 Project at Charles Sturt University. This project provides an opportunity for an ongoing, open dialogue about how some of the CSU community are thinking about the challenges and opportunities we face as an institution.

My talk is about the need to shift the context in which we view learning - away from the campus and to be come more student centred. This reframing and changing of perspective allows us to rethink the role of the university and as well how we think about pedagogy, practice, content and technology.

Seventy years to build a browsable, searchable archive of information, accessible globally. Seventy years between a time when research and data was locked up in books, available to only a privileged few, and a time when information and communication could be obtained by everyone, everywhere. - Karen McGrane
