The highly anticipated (by me) report from the Grattan Institute, Mapping Australian higher education 2018 has been released (see brief summary p.9). The fifth report in a series going back to 2012, shows that in 2016 a record 41 per cent of Australian 19-year-olds were enrolled in higher education institutions. Our recommended summary is the podcast from Higher Education Program Director Andrew Norton, and Fellow Ittima Cherastidtham The value of the report is comprehensive. Not only does it present a range of data sources that map outcomes and trends, it also outlines and describes the Australian higher education landscape. This year, the Grattan Institute has explored the topic of graduate employment and earnings in some depth (see Mapping Australian higher education 2018, chapter 10).
And for something a little different, our Institutional Researcher this month is Dan Jolley, PhD candidate in the School of Psychology at Curtin University. AAIR sponsored Dan Jolley as part of the Early Career Researcher Scholarship to present at the 27th National VET Research Conference ‘No Frills’ in Sydney in August 2018. Dan’s research reflects the pivotal role VET plays in education.
Finally, AAIR is currently on the look-out for a new Newsletter Editor for 2019. I can’t recommend this role enough and if you would like more information please email the Executive Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or email me at email@example.com with any questions.
