This free public seminar will ask, ‘Has Australia the imagination and will to create and maintain international pre-eminence in higher education?’
The tertiary education workforce is an increasingly important component of the national economy, as participation in education increases. Yet this workforce is also ageing rapidly, with few opportunities for new entrants in a tight financial environment.
What are the prospects for Australia’s tertiary teaching, research and professional workforce? What are the opportunities and challenges we can expect over the next five years?
Key issues must be tackled across the next few years if these ambitions are to be realised.
Join Margaret Sheil, Robert Griew, Julie Steiner and Leo Goedegebuure to discuss. Chaired by: Shirley Alexander and Hamish Coates.
Jointly presented by the Centre for the Study of Higher Education and the LH Martin Institute for Tertiary Education Leadership and Management.
