Tertiary education in Australia has some popular problems, which we have admired for years: at least enough for an EP (that’s an extended play vinyl record). No labels have signed up for unpopular solutions in the last three decades, however. A hard rain is starting to fall.
Earlier this year I was able to contribute to the KPMG Australia report Reimagining Tertiary Education: From binary system to ecosystem. In doing so I was struck by many resonances between the situation in Australia and that in the UK, most particularly England.
