Higher Education Contexts and Futures - EDUC869

This unit is a study of the ongoing evolution of the higher education sector through an examination of the cultural, political and technological changes that impact how higher education works in Australia and globally. It aims to empower learners to think critically about higher education as a sector, how it is likely to change, and how institutions can remain relevant. The approach to the course is generative with learner contributions forming a significant part of the course content. Learners will develop a critical eye to identify trends and fads in the sector. Topics covered include not only teaching and learning, but also learning design, new/emerging technologies, leadership, governance and support processes.
