Australian Academic Leadership Survey &;Interviews – An interim report - Allan Christie, Caroline Steel

200 views

Published on

Australian Higher education is facing the demands of new and rapidly changing student demographics, an increasingly competitive global environment and tighter funding and accountability constraints. Now, in 2016, it is an important time to understand the issues the sector is facing and consolidate the ways we are responding. We sought the perspectives of Australian university education leaders on current learning and teaching challenges, trends likely to influence the future of learning and teaching at Australian Universities and the ways our universities are responding.
This presentation reports on the findings of our research thus far and some of the ways that Blackboard Strategic and other Consultancy Services are positioned to assist our institutions going forward.
