Last month we noted with interest two new education models for teaching (ANU’s ‘New Admissions for 2020’ model and Victoria University’s new ‘First Year Model’). This month’s news that the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia have begun formal processes to merge to create a ‘super-institution’—involving a six-month consultation period—is indicative of the disruption occurring across the Australian higher education sector – watch this space!
For those attending the AAIR SIG Forum on 26–27 July, don’t miss the panel discussion on Day 1 with the new Chief Executive of Universities Australia Catriona Jackson, Phil Aungles from the Department of Education and Training, and Lisa Bolton from the Social Research Centre (QILT). As well, ANU Professor Bruce Chapman is the keynote presentation in the morning. The program itself has presentations from Australia, New Zealand and the US, and next month’s newsletter will feature a summary of the event.
And finally, it was a pleasure to be able to interview Kerry Martin in the Institutional Researcher’s Corner this month. Kerry is Director of the Strategic Information and Analysis Unit at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC). She is also part of the hard-working AAIR Executive Committee, and we love her work!
