Because universities are difficult, but worth it
I’ve managed six posts to date in the Imperfect University series to date. Covering leadership, regulation, governance in Scotland, not so revolutionary online provision and more regulation I hope I’ve managed to offer something a bit more substantial here. Anyway, I’d be grateful for any feedback on the series and in the meantime thought it would be helpful to provide links to all six pieces here for your convenience:
An introduction to the series
What kind of people do universities need as leaders – is appointing a top academic enough?
Despite the rhetoric we always seem to end up with additional rather than reduced regulation in higher education.
Comments on a recent review of university governance in Scotland. Not pretty.
Some discussion on this frequently used argument.
On why Massive Open Online Courses aren’t perhaps as revolutionary as is claimed by some.
Plenty more in the pipeline.
